Asparagus officinalis

French: Asperge

 

Asparagus has inspired and attracted the attention of many, from France’s François I to the Sun King, who demanded it even in winter. With its phallic shape and sensual appeal, asparagus was banned from girls’ schools in the 19th century by nuns who feared it would excite the senses and imaginations of young ladies.
