Unless asparagus has been picked fresh I m afraid I am not interested after growing my own some years back. The difference is too much. Love the taste but can't stand the stringy stuff you get from the supermarket.

The place I tend to buy much of our fruit and veg, all locally grown, had sold out or not managed to pick any apples when I went there last week. Still, at least the apples I couldn't buy would have been English.

And the asparagus, too, I suppose.

They don't grow asparagus, so I've not had the pleasure of not buying it. Their peaches were very nice though and not sold as 'ripen at home'.

Going back to growing asparagus, is it more ethical to ship it in or the workers to grow it 'locally'?
