The excluding tip makes Frühlim quite suitable for cultivation under mini-tunnels, or other thermal covering variations.


  • Suitable for the cultivation of white asparagus;
  • Excellently suitable for advanced cultivations;
  • High stem weight and uniform sorting;
  • Frühlim thrives best on properly drained sandy soil.

Frühlim thrives best on well drained sandy soils. During multi-annual own research, the best results for the white cultivation were achieved with a plant density of 3.5 - 4 plants per linear metre and a plant depth of 16 - 20 cm. Due to its natural earliness and advancing, Frühlim is very suitable for extra growing cultivation measures and advance with the aid of thermal foil or a mini-tunnel. Also under various types of covering, Frühlim keeps producing high-quality crops.

Frühlim has a high production potential, good quality and proper thickness. The product is white, has an excellent tip and is hardly or not at all sensitive to hollow stems, breaking or physiological rust. 75% of the products fall under sorting class 16 - 28 mm.

The quite uniform foliage of Frühlim has a dark colour, is raised and strongly developed. The foliage is strong against leaf diseases and will remain green until late into autumn. The good foliage properties also make Frühlim excellently suitable for organic cultivation.
