The starting signal for the German asparagus season has sounded. The first German asparagus from heated cultivation was harvested on February 24, being offered for sale at the Mack & Gerstner stand at the Mannheim wholesale market.
Last year, the first German asparagus was also traded at the Mannheim wholesale market. Last year's season, however, did not start until nearly a week later, on March 4.
