What is the difference between green and white asparagus ? Also do I treat them different?

White you have to peel green you just have to snap the woody ends

Same plant, different growing technique. For white asparagus you prevent photosynthesis by covering the emerging spears with mulch or other materials to block the sunlight. White asparagus has a slightly milder taste than green, but either type will work with any asparagus recipe.
