Places to visit in Israel. Languages: he, en, ru

The wild asparagus grove in Ofer Forest is the origin of the cultivated supermarket variety. The tender wicker, or shoot, is the most valuable part of the plant. When foraging, it's crucial to harvest the asparagus at the soft, not the hard, part of the shoot.

Asparagus is renowned for its health benefits, particularly for cleansing the kidneys and urinary system. It is characterized by a strong ammonia scent, especially noticeable after consumption. Additionally, asparagus is the subject of commercial collections for cancer research, highlighting its potential medicinal properties and its significance in both culinary and scientific communities.
