Asparagus season

Asparagus season lasts about two months in Holland. The first asparagus peek from the ground early in spring, around February or early March. They are traditionally harvested from the second Thursday in April until 24 June.

Asparagus from Limburg

Several regions in Holland grow asparagus but Limburg is the main asparagus-producing area. Spring in Limburg is therefore characterised by ‘white gold’, so this is the perfect moment to discover how asparagus is cultivated and harvested. And, of course, to try the broad variety of dishes in which asparagus is the star ingredient.
