The term asparagus (from the Greek ‘aspharagos’, or ‘sprout’) belongs to the Liliaceae family.The sowing, which is carried out between March and June, results in an underground trunk, known as a rhizome, from which lateral buds develop and grow upwards. These shoots, covered in small squama, are known as spears and represent the edible part.
