There’s Still Time to Celebrate: May is National Asparagus Month

Zach Effrog, Big Frog 104, Townsquare Media

I’ve been having fun celebrating this month. Why, you ask? Well, asparagus is my favorite vegetable. Yes, I was the kid who enjoyed all the vegetables at dinner time that nobody else did–asparagus, brussels sprouts, spinach, green beans–I love them all. Having a 100 percent vegan diet, I can’t think of a vegetable I don’t like. So, in honor of my favorite vegetable, and because it’s National Asparagus Month (for a few more days), I found some fun facts about asparagus.

Here are some interesting facts about asparagus, according to

  • Asparagus is a member of the Lily family.
  • A well cared for asparagus planting will generally produce for about 15 years without being replanted.
  • Asparagus is a nutrient-dense food which in high in Folic Acid and is a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, and thiamin.
  • Asparagus has No Fat, contains No Cholesterol and is low in Sodium.

How are you going to celebrate National Asparagus Month?
