April 23 is the traditional start of the asparagus season. It’s notoriously hard to grow and most of the British varieties come from the Vale of Evesham in England, where generations of families have had plenty of experience in managing it.

You can buy it all year round from far flung places like Peru and Mexico but it makes so much more sense to enjoy it now, in its limited season. Locally grown is vastly superior in the flavour department and you have the added bonus of a smaller carbon footprint.
