|Green asparagus (Aspararagus officianalis)
Since 1982 Giardinetto Cooperative has experimented the first plants of asparagus and, today,
thanks to the development of this cultivation, the cooperative is one of the main producers in the
province of Foggia.
Specialized asparagus-grower associates cultivate a soil wider than 200 hectares, distributed in
the territories of the province of Foggia.
The asparagus of Giardinetto is certified EUREP GAP. A qualified staff of technicians constantly
check the production in all its phases: cultivation, harvesting, storage, packaging and transport
in observance of the Quality Manual provided for by the certification.
During cultivation phase the producers scrupulously follow the advice of specialized agronomists
to respect the production disciplinary. Numerous multi-residual tests, before harvesting, confirm
the total absence of phytopharmacies.
The harvesting has got very painstaking times and ways, so that the product can’t result withered
nor with inadequate characteristics. The transport to the conditioning centre is done spending as
less time as possible, so that the asparagus preserves its freshness.
After storage and conditioning phases the asparagus is manufactured and packaged.
The asparagus of Giardinetto Cooperative, besides containing organoleptic and healthy virtues,
thanks to the chemical-physical and structural characteristics of its soil and to the favourable
climatic conditions, is different from the others produced in Italy for its completely edible stem (at
least 25cm. of taste!) and for its entirely green colour, so to be named “wholly green asparagus
of Daunia”, a peculiarity which is going to give it the IGP quality trademark.
