Norbert, the last asparagus producer in Gallargues-le-Montueux
Norbert, Last asparagus producer in Gallargues-le-Montueux
Norbert was kind enough to let me film to keep traces of this culture in Gallargues. He sells his green asparagus in Gallargues: 9 rue de la Craimade, mobile: 06 82 92 06 53
The aparagus requires rich soils to grow but also minerals in quantity to have taste. Thus, thanks to the numerous floods of the Vidourle, the alluvial plain of Gallargues-le-Montueux has become a land predestined for the production of asparagus.
Norbert remains the last producer of green asparagus in Gallargues-le-Montueux. In the video, he shows us the harvest, the grading/washing and the preparation of the orders. At the end of the video, the asparagus field after harvest: very surprising for those who don't know...
Without going into details, the craze for asparagus is not new and comes from one of the most basic instincts of human beings. Field asparagus produces molecules that have an aphrodisiac effect in both men and women. Asparagus also has such a specific taste that these aromas are given as an example when describing certain varietal wines, for example Sauvignon wines.
