The transition to Delta Asparagus is finally happening! We have received a limited supply of our first of the season Delta Asparagus. As exciting as this is, we need to preface this by saying that supplies will be tight at first which may cause us to have to occasionally supplement our warehouse with deliveries of California Asparagus (not from the Delta). It is possible that you will receive Delta Asparagus on one delivery and California on the next. As supplies catch up in the coming weeks, we will not have the need to supplement with Southern California ‘grass’. Asparagus is packed in five sizes: Pencil, Standard, Large, X-tra Large and Jumbo. The size of the asparagus you choose should be determined by how you intend to cook it. Pencil (about the diameter of a pencil) is best for sauté/ stir-frys and very quick cooking. Standard (roughly the diameter of your pinky finger) is the most common size and is great blanched in chilled salads or cold appetizers. Large (the diameter of your index finger) is great for grilling as it will allow you to add a nice char and still be al dente. Xtra-Large and Jumbo (about the diameter of your thumb) is perfect for longer cooking applications like roasting or braising. It is important to know that size has no bearing on flavor or color. Both Delta Asparagus and California Asparagus packed in 28# cases only.
