Aspargus is native to Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia.
Asparagus may be purchased fresh in season, or frozen/canned for year round consumption.
Fresh asparagus is used in many cuisines and may be eaten raw (blanched), fried, grilled, steamed, or boiled. It is used in soups, salads, stir fry, dipped in sauce, or eaten as is.
