Hmm, I think maybe a hint is in order. Another common name does not contain the word asparagus in it. Clear as mud but not as useful.

I don't know about your clue
But how about Mary Washington asparagus? I didn't even know there were different kinds (other than green or white), but that one kinda ringed a bell.

And I hope you know you're making me take more asparagus out of the freezer

lol! Not MW asparagus. These are much, much smaller.

Sorry, my hint sucked. How about a better one. This type of asparagus is also known as a samphire.

Boy, I sure don't know my asparagus(es?). But I don't believe these are known as garden asparagus (I did a quick search and didn't come up as such).
