Asparagus is a Mediterranean product that has been in the culinary culture of dozens of civilizations and even has been cultivated for medicinal purposes. The Greeks already had it as a delicacy and also the Romans, although it is believed that the Arabs were the ones to bring it to the Iberian Peninsula.

It is a very meticulous plant, harvested by hand and requires great care during their short growing season. Asparagus is low in calories, high in fiber and provides a considerable amount of two antioxidants: vitamins A and C.
