As soon as the Brabantse Wal asparagus become available at the end of March, Rungis switches from Limburg AA asparagus to Brabantse Wal asparagus, which are sorted more tightly.

Along the border of Western Brabant with Zeeland and Flanders lies a striking landscape: De Brabantse Wal. The wide variety of soil types and land use is distinctive for the Brabantse Wal.

The Brabantse Wal asparagus are distinguished by its slightly salty taste. This unique taste is formed by the underground water that finds its way from the Kalmthoutse Heide through the Brabantse Wal towards Zeeland and by the salty sea air that blows over the Wal from Zeeland.

In 2016, the Brabantse Wal Asparagus was recognized as a European regional product and is therefore on the same list as Gouda cheese, Parma ham and the Opperdoezer Ronde; so good company!
