After the harvest, the asparagus must be sent to the processing center, delivered in bunches or in bulk.
To preserve them, it is essential to slow down the product's metabolism by rapidly cooling the product by partially immersing the turion in water or other suitable cooling system.

The product is packaged in bunches, from a minimum of 250 grams to a maximum of Kg 3, suitably tied, and balanced at the base by means of a mechanical or manual trimming operation. They can be wrapped, at the base, with handkerchiefs of material suitable for the packaging of food products; as an alternative to the handkerchief, the bouquets can be decorated with a band of suitable material, horizontal or vertical, showing all the indications provided for in the EEC 2081/92 regulation. Thus prepared, the bouquets should be placed in the various packing containers.

Asparagus properties
Lasparago is richer in fiber than other vegetables and provides limited quantities of fats, proteins and sugars, while it is rich in minerals essential for man, in particular calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. This vegetable also has a good content of antioxidants, as well as vitamins A, B6 and C and is an excellent source of folic acid.
