Season: Early May – Late June
Out Of Season
Welsh Bros. asparagus is harvested from early May until late June. It is a perennial crop. We plant the asparagus root and then after three years of growth we can harvest it. The variety we mainly plant is Millennium. Welsh Bros. hand-picks and hand-grades our asparagus taking into account tip size and quality.
The field is picked daily, sometimes twice a day in warmer temperatures. Welsh Bros. asparagus is hydro-cooled immediately after it is harvested to lock in the flavour ensuring the best tasting product is delivered to your retailer.
