Asparagus
It’s just about time for the spring asparagus harvest in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta area.

California grows more than 11,000 acres of asparagus every year, adding up to more than 40 million pounds of the vegetable valued at about $75-million. California provides more than 70 percent of the fresh asparagus in the nation, year round.
