Yes, you can forage asparagus, especially in the Galil. I haven't found any in the Golan yet, but I have found plenty in a variety of places in the Galil.

Asparagus is really only edible if you find shoots that are young. If you wait too long, they get woody and tasteless and even thorny. Not so good.
But if you catch them at the right time - you'll find gorgeous shoots of varying thicknesses, that are very tasty!

Once you've found them, you'll know they are still tasty because you can just simply break them off with nearly no effort.
I hope you find some too!
p.s. if you like the "bandana visors" my daughter and I are wearing the picture above, I still have some for sale. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for color availability and pricing information!
