Kashrut Instructions  (Courtesy of OU Kosher)
GREEN ASPARAGUS:
DESCRIPTION: Asparagus contains beetles and thrips. Thrips are primarily found under the triangle scales and somewhat less frequently in the tips of the asparagus.

INSPECTION:

•Shave down the floret at the asparagus tip.
•Remove the triangle parts along the side of the asparagus. (A potato peeler is recommended.)
•Wash thoroughly.
When prepared in this manner, special inspection is not necessary.

WHITE ASPARAGUS:
This hard to find and very expensive cousin to green asparagus has neither open florets nor scales for the insects to occupy. Hence, it may be used without any special preparation. However, it should be washed thoroughly before using.
