What's different about purple asparagus? Purple asparagus is higher in sugar than the green variety, and produces a sweeter and nutty flavor when cooked. Purple asparagus stalks tend to be thicker and less stringy, which makes them tenderer when cooked. And they're eaten raw more often than their greener cousins. Meijer purple asparagus comes from North Bay Produce in Traverse City, Michigan and Oomen Farms in Hart, Michigan.
