When people think of Ontario farmed fruits and veg they sometimes forget our provinces obsession with these weird green sticks. It is a vegetable that very few people buy outside of its 1.5 month season in Ontario. That must be why we all eat pounds of it every May and June to make up for the rest of the year.
