I used to go "asparagus hunting with my Mom when I was growing up.

And to make a long story short I now have taught my 4 kids (the youngest is 3) where to find the wild asparagus and what it looks like, we have great adventures doing it.

Wild Asparagus look a like any suggestions?

I was picking wild Asparagus yesterday (March 31st) in Montenegro (Balkan region, E. Europe). I have been looking for information on a similar look-alike found the the same habitat as the wild asparagus, often growing directly next to it.

See two photos uploaded. The first is of wild asparagus, the second is of the look-alike. Any ID suggestions?


I will upload more photos on www.anthropogen.com. Thank you for this fantastic and informative site...

Since I have learned about wild asparagus, I have been on the search for the plants. It is now the tail end of summer and I have a pretty long list of where I've seen the plants that are seeding. They are all over! I only hope that when spring comes, I won't be too late!

South Junction Manitoba Canada

My wife and i bought a acerage here in June 2012. While out mowing the lawn I was making a pass along a hedge line that runs the length of our property I noticed the plants about ten in all. Right now the plants have red berris on them August 2012 . As we are retired now and fine a little time to go quading we have found more plants in the ditch lines along the secondary roads i would like to transplant some of plants this fall , i'm not sure how long it takes to get patch to produce ,so no better time then now ,as we have just opened a bnb this would a great addition to our spring menu.The ditchs are loaded with ferns just perfect for fiddleheads next spring . Here's a dish to think about this winter, fresh asparagus spears ,fiddleheads,with wild rice,mushroom stuffed chicken breasts

Wild Asparagus - very near our country home

by Bev
(Central United States)

We have a friend who harvested wild asparagus for years. He would mark his various patches with a small bit of litter, smashed and buried beneath weeds so only he would think to look for it.
Our friend began to have bad knees and could no longer keep his patches up to encourage their spring production, so he handed down the location of an easily seen patch near our home.
It was great entertainment to enjoy the brief walk there, and be careful not to be seen by any other interested parties.
Since, we've planted our own patch.
Thanks for asking!

Wild Asparagus in Ontario - Canada

by Eugene
(Windsor Ontario)

I have several spots here in my home town of Windsor. The spears are all so different. Some are green and straight and 14 inches long and some are purple and twisted like a corkscrew. There is no comparison to wild asparagus. Great with an Ontario Top serloin and a cold lager.

The hills around our village are full of wild asparagus in the winter and spring months, young boys go up in the early morning and come back laden with it a couple of hours later to sell on the streets.
