Frühlim is a 100% male hybrid that is extremely suitable for producing white asparagus in a temperate climate. Frühlim combines very early production with thick spears of good quality. The tightly closed tips make Frühlim ideal for cultivation in mini-tunnels or under other types of thermal plastic.


Frühlim grows best in well-drained sandy soil. During in-house research over a period of several years the best white asparagus results were obtained with a plant density of 4 plants per linear meter and a planting depth of 16-20 cm. Frühlim’s natural earliness makes it particularly suitable for measures for forcing extra-early crops or for obtaining early crops using thermal plastic or mini-tunnels. Frühlim continues to produce high-quality asparagus under those various forms of cover.

The plant

Frühlim’s very uniform foliage is dark, erect and vigorous. It is very resistant to foliage diseases and retains its green colour until late in the autumn. These good foliage characteristics make Frühlim very suitable for organic cultivation.
