Quick Reference

Sprue is a term for thin or young shoots of asparagus. It first came into the language in the middle of the nineteenth century (from where is not clear), when it seems to have had rather negative connotations of inferiority or immaturity, but nowadays when designer vegetables, slim and exquisite, are all the rage this stigma has been lifted.
