Sicily's wild asparagus is picked in April and May. This is one of the more esoteric delights of our island - artichokes and other vegetables are far better known and harvested in greater quantities.
But it shouldn't be overlooked.
Yes, it is elusive. You may have to venture into one of Sicily's street markets to find it. If you're just visiting, it may be that much more difficult to find a restaurant that includes wild asparagus on its menu. For the most part, this is something Sicilians make at home.
It's worth the effort. Our wild asparagus article talks about this rare treat.
