These extra large white asparagus spears are so tender they will melt in your mouth. In Spain, they are a sought after delicacy, usually served on a salad, or whole with a dollop of mayo.

King Juan Carlos once sampled these white asparagus from El Navarrico and exclaimed 'Cojonudos!’ which is slightly off-color slang for ‘tasty!’

Every spring, spears of an asparagus fern begin to break through the rich earth of Navarra. These white asparagus never reach the surface. They are covered by large earth mounds so the spears are protected from the sun, which would turn them green and fibrous. To reach their mammoth size, these spears are come from plants that are several years old.

El Navarrico is famous for producing the finest white asparagus. The asparagus from this area is so well known in Spain that it has its own D.O. (protected Denomination of Origin), guaranteeing its quality.
