Provençal jumbo white asparagus is grown under black tarps to avoid any exposure to light and dug out from beneath the soil to prevent the formation of chlorophyll....a naturally bitter compound. Provence is considered the most coveted asparagus-producing region throughout Europe for its higher sugar content and less fibrous asparagus. These asparagus are 22-28 mm in circumference, about the size of a silver dollar.

Extremely sweet, white asparagus is delicious lightly steamed and tossed in butter or perfect grilled and served with hollandaise.
