Vegalim

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

Cultivation

Vegalim 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. Vegalim is a 100% male hybrid, so it not only stands for a long and profitable production life, but it also produces no seedlings.

Product

Vegalim has a high production potential, perfect quality and very good thickness. Spears with red and purple stripes which do not comply with the quality standards may appear during harvest. The degree to which this occurs is not predictable and the phenomenon seems to be caused by stress conditions. More than 70% of its uniform production is in diameter class 12 mm +. Even in warm or hot conditions, the tip of Vegalim remains firmly closed. Vegalim produces attractive, cylindrical, smooth spears.

Foliage

Vegalim has uniform, very upright foliage and has good resistance to foliage diseases. As it forms no female berries, the foliage is hardly susceptible to lodging.
