I had my own asparagus patch for the better part of 25 years. Freshly harvested asparagus have a wonderful flavor; It has a slightly sweet aftertaste with a hint of flower ( roselike?) aroma. These attributes rapidly decline and are pretty much gone within 2 to 3 days after harvest.

Canned asparagus, on the other hand, tends to have a sourish and somewhat metallic taste.
