A true emblematic product of spring for consumers, the asparagus of the Sables des Landes, whose harvest began at the beginning of March, is an exceptional product that is highly sought after. Inherited from the Landes region, it is characterized by its tenderness and freshness, and is ideal for lunch or dinner, with only 25 calories per 100 g, a contribution in mineral salts, and diuretic properties.
Asparagus is grown in the vast sandy plain of the Landes de Gascogne, a region of 1.4 million hectares that has become the cradle of this crop.
The white asparagus of the Landes
At Maïsadour, asparagus is grown on 305 hectares of land under an official sign of quality and certified PGI “Asperge des Sables des Landes”, or Global Cap. Asparagus is a premium product. To guarantee their exceptional freshness and unique flavor, Sables des Landes asparagus is harvested before it sees the sun and is sorted, washed and packaged within four hours of being picked in the area.
They are then sold locally and internationally under the Priméale brand, France’s leading asparagus distributor and partner of Maïsadour.
