Asparagus refers either to the culinary vegetable, or to the perennial plant origination from Europe which produces it. The early-spring stalks are harvested, at about eight inches in height.[1]

Asparagus is very low in fat and carbohydrates and contains many nutrients including iron, magnesium, zinc and many essential vitamins. It is ideal for those looking to lose weight[2].
