Photo: German Asparagus Picture

A picture of bags of asparagus or Spargel in German, on display at the Saturday Farmers Market in Freising, Bavaria in Germany.

If you are German you would recognize this vegetable on display at the Saturday Farmers Market in Freising, Germany as spargel but people in North America usually call this asparagus. This picture shows plenty of bags loaded with asparagus at the market in Freising, Germany with each row waiting to be bought by people that come to the market to shop.

In Germany, asparagus is white in color as it is grown underneath the soil so that it is protected from photosynthesis. The end result when the asparagus is ready for sale is that it is still white in color and the flavour is much sweeter.

Spargel in German or asparagus is just one of the delicious vegetables for sale at the Saturday Farmers Market in Freising as you will discover once you get there. If asparagus is what you are looking for while at the Farmers Market, then the best month to get it in would be May as the crops are harvested from late April to early June. ... continue below the picture...

Spargel (asparagus) is extremely popular with the German people as there are festivals held when it is harvested where people celebrate its arrival. There are at least 57,000 tons of asparagus harvested each year but that is still extremely short as it is in such high demand.

Next time you walk buy a market while in Europe and you see Spargel for sale, be prepared to buy some and enjoy the luxury of food that the German people do. If asparagus is really not one of your favorite types of food, at least take a picture of it and show the people back home as it is considered a treasure in the food industry in Germany.
