The wild sprout that marks the coming of Spring! Wild asparagus is a low shrub with a dark green color, which has thorns instead of leaves. Its shoots emerge separately from the soil, without the presence of a central trunk. What is eaten are the young shoots. Their color varies from off-white, various shades of green, to dark green almost black.
The Messinian Wild asparagus is found almost everywhere, from places by the sea or even the mountains! It loves water, the coolness and it also likes fences because it uses them to weave its branches.
In cooking, it is used in infinite ways either in simpler recipes or as an accompaniment to gourmet dishes because it is considered the "aristocrat" of vegetables.
