Default When to harvest rocambole scapes?

I want to know when is the best time to harvest my Spanish Roja scapes - I mean, do I let them curl once, twice, or ??? before snapping, for the best eating quality.

Yes we are very late here, I just harvested some porcelain scapes today and the Spanish Roja are not at all started yet - which is a good thing in the circumstances - later the better. My brother is getting married the third week in August, SIL is a chef, and I offered her these scapes for the weddin food preps. I know they can be kept in a fridge for a couple of weeks for the fresh uses... I'm not sure what she will do with them at all... but I want to be sure I harvest them when they are primo. TIA for your advice!
