For asparagus to be green, it needs the sun! Its green coloration is due to the process of photosynthesis and the development of chlorophyll under the action of light.
If it stays underground, it remains white. The climate and the region are therefore fundamental! Most varieties produce either white or green asparagus, only the method of cultivation will define the color of the asparagus.
It is sufficient to cover the asparagus plants with a 30 cm high mound of earth to produce white asparagus and, on the other hand, to let them grow in the open air and in full sun to produce green asparagus. In Provence and more particularly in the Vaucluse.
