The Province of Verona is famous for the cultivation of this delicious vegetable. It is produced mainly in the municipalities of Arcole, Zevio, Belfiore and Cologna Veneta.
Asparagus is a precious vegetable, with a fleshy consistency and a delicate yet intense flavor.
There are different varieties of asparagus, with different colors and size.
In Verona you will find a lot of white asparagus: this color is due to the deep placement of the product in the ground, completely protected from light. If the asparagus is not planted too deep, it will become green.
Asparagus are used to make soups, risottos, cold appetizers, omelets, in combination with meat and fish.
The main dish is a bunch of asparagus boiled in butter with parmesan cheese and hard-boiled eggs.
