Seasonal period: March, April, May

Green asparagus, also known as black or bitter asparagus grows exposed to sunlight. That’s why chlorophyll is produced by the plant, which turns it green. These asparagus are highly appreciated for their taste and the time of the year they are available at, which goes from November to March.

Their nutritional values are pretty much the same as white asparagus, although the taste of green ones is a bit more intense and the white ones are milder.
