The asparagus season comes early


The
2012 season
for
asparagus
began
early this year
in Germany
.


The
sunny days
of last month
helped
start the
asparagus season
 and s
ince week
13
,
several regions
in Germany
have started
harvesting
.
Prices are
still high
(10 to 15
/ kg
)
but large
quantities
are planned
for weeks
14 and 15
, which should
bring prices down
.


Germany
leads
European production
with
103,000
tons
of asparagus
harvested
last
year
and leads 
consumption
with
1.94 kg
of
fresh
asparagus
purchased
per household
.


Only
two
markets
in Europe
have
increased demand for 
asparagus
:
Germany
(
where consumers
prefer
white asparagus
)
and
the UK
(
where consumers
prefer
green asparagus
)
.
