Availability
 Asparagus...

Domestic production of asparagus is concentrated in California and Washington, with California producing about three times the volume of Washington. California's harvest begins in February, peaks in April and winds down in June. Washington peaks in the May - June period.

Imports are substantial 10 months of the year with May and June being the exceptions. Mexico is our primary supplier for January, February and March. South American imports peak September through December with Peru being the largest supplier.

Look for asparagus that is very green and firm, with closed and compact tips.
