Purple Asparagus, sweet?

jcmods | May 30, 2011 01:10 PM

I saw purple asparagus from Peru while shopping today and was curious, but not willing to buy it without knowing more about it. According to several websites, it has a 20% higher sugar content than green asparagus and the taste is described as "sweet". Now I'm not so sure I want to try it as I think there is a very good reason you won't find asparagus flavored candy on the shelves. Looking for some feedback from those who've tried it.
