Maxlim is a 100% male hybrid that is extremely suitable for growing white asparagus in warm/ Mediterranean climate zones. Maxlim starts producing very high yields early on. Its production will remain stable and high for a long period, ensuring very high yields. Maxlim is also suitable for harvest advancing measures.


Maxlim will grow best in well-drained, vital soils. In multi-year research the best white asparagus results were obtained with a plant density of 5-6 plants per linear meter and a planting depth of 18-20 cm. In vital soils that are not susceptible to drought or in plots with irrigation and/or fertigation, plants may also be planted in densities of six to eight per linear meter. Maxlim’s beautifully tight tips make this variety very suitable for the use of thermal mulch or mini-tunnels to advance harvests.
