Abstract

Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) (2n = 20), a monocotyledon belonging to the Liliaceae family, is a perennial species which is productive for 10 years or more. Every spring young stems, known as spears, emerge through the ground. They represent the edible part of the plant and are collected every day for 2 months. After the harvest period the stems grow and develop "branches" covered with stem-like cladophylls, while the leaves are reduced to small scales along the stems. In autumn, carbohydrates are accumulated in the roots. The perennial part of the plant is the crown, a rhizome-like structure consisting of buds and storage roots along with rootlets which ensure absorption. The plant has a rest period during winter, except in warm climates where it grows all year long.
