Spring is when asparagus springs up all across the UK, in all sorts of weird and wonderful shapes. Rather than waste the wonky spears our farmers produce, we buy the whole crop and put the mis-shapes on our shelves so you can enjoy this versatile veg for less.
Rather than waste the crooked crop, we’re putting them in our stores and online at just £1 per 100g pack*. If you’re cooking up a soup, or chopping them up for a salad, nobody will ever know the difference, so look out for wonky asparagus in store and online.
“We’ve stepped in to buy the crop as we wanted to help growers and put this normally luxury ingredient into the hands of shoppers for just a pound.”
Michael Weightman, Asparagus Buyer at Morrisons
While the early asparagus might not be ‘perfect’ in the looks department, it still tastes tender and sweet - just like the straighter ones.
