Local Asparagus Delivery in Devon

asparagus

At F. Milford and Son’s, we have a great selection of fresh fruit and vegetables that we deliver to local businesses in Exeter and surrounding Devon towns and villages every day. Asparagus has now come into season, which means that we have just started delivering it to our customers.

Asparagus is a great vegetable as it is full of vitamins and minerals; it contains high levels of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium, iron and calcium, which are all essential for a healthy lifestyle.

It also has different characteristics depending on where it was grown; English asparagus is green, French is purple and Spanish is white, because it is grown beneath the soil. English asparagus is usually grown between May-July, but we can source it as early as February and as late as September from our supplier in the Wye Valley.

At Milford’s we source our asparagus from two different suppliers; the one in the Wye Valley and one from the Vale of Evesham.

An interesting fact about asparagus is that it can grow up to 10 cm per day, some people have even claimed that they can hear the shoots growing.

There are lots of different ways that you can enjoy it; you could bake it in a tart, have it as a side with some salmon or even your Sunday roast. Asparagus is also great in risottos, salads, pasta dishes and stir-fries – we’re happy to talk about recipes with customers at any time!

Alternatively, if you would like to talk to us about a delivery of our delicious asparagus in Devon, then contact us today to discuss your needs with us.
