·1. 1. The name for asparagus comes from a Greek word, asparagos, which means “sprout” or “shoot”. This word was likely borrowed from the Persians, with their similar word of the same meaning, “asparag”.
· 2. After planting, asparagus is not usually harvested in the first 3 seasons, which helps the plant develop strong, sturdy roots. Generally, a plant that is tended well will produce for 15-20 years.
