Is a smaller or larger asparagus size more tender?
Answer: Both small and large spears can be tender vs. stalk..y. The larger spears of asparagus is a mature asparagus and the smaller spears are younger spears sometimes only in the early stage of its years, both coming from the same crown or plant which is below ground in a large network of roots that shoots up from the ground. Mature asparagus crowns can produce small and large stalks are in each harvest. Many people like the larger spears for grilling and the smaller ones for chopping In dishes. Because we harvest only the tips of both small and the large asparagus it is quite tender and premium quality. Also, when you buy local you get it fresh, fresh fresh!
