Here's the latest article from the German Culture site at BellaOnline.com.


GERMANY'S WHITE ASPARAGUS SEASON, SPARGELZEIT


Harvested and thoroughly enjoyed throughout Germany for two months from around the middle of April until June 24th, St. John the Baptist’s feast day, 'Spargel' are a symbol of spring to many Germans, and ‘Spargelzeit’ is the much anticipated 'White Asparagus Season'.

The white spears are considered a delicacy and quite an expensive one, so they are still known by their original, and in those days absolutely accurate, nickname of ‘The Royal Vegetable or ‘Das Koenigliche Gemuese’.
