      Did you know?

      Ever come across a white asparagus? Grown undergrown, these pale spears aren’t exposed to sunlight, which means they don’t produce chlorophyll (what makes plants green). White asparagus is a delicacy in other parts of the world, like Europe, even inspiring full-blown festivals and celebrations.
