Some Of The History Of Asparagus

Asparagus has a long history going back as far as the first century. We have records of it growing in ancient Greece and Rome. Egyptians over 2,000 years ago cultivated asparagus for medicinal reasons and legend has it that it was so revered they offered it up to gods in their rituals. As with all vegetables the first asparagus was discovered in the wild. A wild asparagus has thin shoots thinner than a pencil and is much different than the asparagus that you find In your grocery counter.

The name Asparagus is interesting. Ancient Greeks and Romans used a Persian word "asparag" which meant shoot. The term sperage became popular for many years and in the 16th century and we find that the term "sparagus" was used in English speaking countries. The peasants would call it " sparrow grass".

During the 19th century Asparagus took over about the same time that cultivation of asparagus takes now in the United States.
