White Asparagus in TO

I just came back from Germany in mid-May, and overindulged on fresh white asparagus. I have tried many of the Chinese greengrocers in Toronto, but nothing. Does anyone know if it is possible to get white asparagus in TO?

    I bought it today at the Loblaw's at gerrard and vic park. It was 5.99 a pound.I boiled it for 4 mins with salt, then put lemon rind, lemon juice, garlic and butter in a fry pan and sauteed for 3 mins. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve. Simple and fantastic!

      I've seen white asparagus in NUMEROUS supermarkets in the past 2 weeks...Pusateri's, Longo's on York Mills/Leslie, Loblaw's Queen's Quay, and St. Lawrence Market.

      Call ahead to just confirm they still have them, but like I said, I've been to all these places in the last 2 weeks and have seen them there. The most freshest to tell you the truth were the ones at Longo's.

      Happy Eats!
