Sunlim is a 100% male hybrid that is ideal for green asparagus production in regions with a warm or Mediterranean climate. Sunlim combines early initial production with extremely high yields and excellent quality. Sunlim is also ideally suited to forced early cultivation.


Sunlim 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 25,000–32,000 plants per hectare with a planting depth of 15-25 cm. The highest planting density can be used on fields that can be irrigated or where drip fertigation is installed. Sunlim is a 100% male hybrid, which not only means a long and profitable production life, but it also produces no seedlings.

The plant

Sunlim has uniform, very upright foliage with good resistance to foliage diseases and lodging. As it forms no female berries, the foliage has low susceptibility to lodging.
