Now that jumbo jets whiz it in from all over the world, fresh asparagus is available all year round. Our own English asparagus is in season from April to June and for the rest of the year it comes to us from the USA, Mexico, Spain, Peru and Thailand. Quality and type vary, and the cost of long-distance sourcing is reflected in its price, which can soar to nearly the £7 mark around Christmas, a strong argument for eating only our domestic asparagus during its season.
