The Instacart guide to green asparagus


About green asparagus

Green asparagus is a perennial plant and a member of the lily family. It looks like slender spears with a pointed, scaly tip. The asparagus that we see in the store is the young shoot of the plant. If left to keep growing, the asparagus plant becomes a huge, feathery fern.

The majority of commercial green asparagus comes from growers in Michigan, Washington, and California. It is a springtime vegetable, but because producers in China, Peru, and Germany supply the U.S., you can find it year-round. The flavor will vary depending on where it's grown and how it's prepared. Asparagus plants thrive in areas where the ground freezes. The thawing in the spring encourages the spears to emerge.

FAQs About Green Asparagus

There are a few different ways to store green asparagus once you get it home from the store. You can put it in a vase of water, like a bouquet of flowers, if you have room in your fridge to keep it upright. If you don't have this kind of space, you can wrap the ends in a damp paper towel and then place the whole bunch in a plastic bag. This can either stand upright in the fridge or lay flat. If you keep the green asparagus loose in the plastic bag in the crisper drawer, it will work fine. Just eat it as soon as possible. 

Green asparagus is loaded with nutrients, including more glutathione than any other vegetable. Glutathione is an antioxidant that has cancer-fighting properties and can also help prevent several other diseases. Green asparagus also contains chemical compounds called polyphenols. These are another type of antioxidant that, when consumed, will help reduce inflammation and can help reduce stress. Unlike many other vegetables that keep more of their nutrients when left raw, cooking green asparagus helps to increase its antioxidant activity and boost the amount of beta carotene. It is also high in folic acid and an excellent source of potassium, vitamins A, C, and B6, and it is high in fiber.
