TEBOZA ASPARAGUS: CLASSICS AS WELL AS TRENDSETTERS
White asparagus: classic and refined, yet also easy and surprising
White asparagus are young shoots of the asparagus plant. They have straight, fleshy stems with a white colour. A proper white asparagus has a firm top. White asparagus have a mild flavour as well as a refined texture. On the field, the white asparagus are covered with sand to prevent the entry of sunlight. That is the reason the asparagus keep their white colour. The white asparagus must be cut at the exact right moment, because as soon as the tip comes above ground, there is a risk of discolouration.
Green asparagus: versatile and full flavour
Green asparagus are the over ground young shoots of the asparagus plant. It is the straight fleshy stems that have a light-green colour. The tip of the green asparagus stem is generally firm and unopened. Of all the varieties the green asparagus has the best flavour, which is why their use is versatile. Another advantage of green asparagus, in comparison with other asparagus, is that they don’t require peeling.

Especially for customers who won’t settle for anything but the best, there is the Teboza Superior Queen asparagus. Top-quality asparagus; absolutely daily fresh with a pure, authentic flavour.
