"Spring air in sticks", "white gold" or "the regal vegetable": asparagus is the one vegetable with the most nicknames.
Asparagus thrives on the sandy soil of the Regnitz valley. This is why the asparagus season from mid-April to 24th June should not be missed. The asparagus is harvested by hand. This means that each individual stick is cut by hand. Fresh from the field, this delicacy is served at Bamberg's market in all its glory - in white, green and purple.
