Tips for Storing Asparagus

Storing asparagus can be tricky because it is very sensitive to its environment.

Asparagus is sensitive to the cold and can become damaged at temperatures at or below 32°F (0°C). On the other hand, prolonged storage at temperatures above 50°F (15°C) will cause the asparagus to get tough.

Exposure to ethylene gas can also cause asparagus to become tough.

Place asparagus upright in a jar with about an inch of water. Cover loosely with plastic and store in the refrigerator.

Store for up to 10 days.
