Aomori’s asparagus is cultivated in the greenhouse as a winter vegetable from December through March. They are produced by the “forced cultivation” method, planting the parent root grown in summer in the greenhouse and harvesting them in winter. Aomori’s green asparagus in winter has good quality and taste and has received high praise from outside the prefecture. more
