Grown on Barfoots' farms in southwest England, the Crown Jewel spears are said to be sweeter than other asparagus varieties.

Barfoots commercial manager James Meers said: "After a difficult period during the recent floods, the asparagus produced is testament to the hard work put in by the growers to ensure a high quality crop."

Priced at £2.99, the 200g packs are part of Barfoots' Grown With Love product range, which ensures high ethical, environmental and quality standards. 

It also includes sweet potato, butternut squash and sweetcorn, also on sale through Ocado.
