Asparagus should be fresh and firm with compact tips. Spears should be straight and round, and should snap easily when bent. Diameter of spears is not an indicator of quality. Spears with larger diameters are just as tender and flavorful as slender spears. Avoid asparagus with wilted appearance or spreading tips.
