Dry weather set to deliver bumper asparagus crop
Dry weather might be the scourge of many crops but for Aussie asparagus growers it could mean one of the best crops in years. Australian Asparagus Council president, Alex Motta, said this year’s crop is on track to be one of the best, with the good year of preparation meaning the early season spears are delicious, crisp and firm. One serve of asparagus, which is about three to four spears, has a quarter of an adult’s daily vitamin C needs, as well as providing B vitamins, potassium, and fibre.
