Portlim is a 100% male hybrid that is ideal for green asparagus cultivation in regions with a temperate climate. Portlim combines medium-early production with high yields and a long, profitable production life.


Portlim grows best on fertile, well-drained soils. Our own trials for green asparagus production conducted over a series of years showed that the best results were achieved with a planting density of 4 plants per linear meter with a planting depth of 15-20 cm. Portlim is a strong variety that can even produce an acceptable crop in more difficult conditions.
