Gijnlim F1, Asparagus

• Suitable for white and green
• Very early season with a high production potential
• Suitable for forced production
• Recommended plant density: 3-4 plants per metre

Gijnlim is a 100% male hybrid and ideally suited for cultivation of both white and green asparagus in high climate zones. This variety is an exceptionally early grower and gives very high productivity. Gijnlim is ideal for forced cultivation conditions.

Gijnlim performs well on sandy and clay soils. The more fertile the soil is, the later spear thickness will remain good even when the season is advanced. Extensive practical experience has shown that the best results for white asparagus are achieved with a planting density of 3-3.5 plants per metre. This plant density can be increased by approximately 30% if the asparagus is harvested green. Higher planting densities give a higher yield but can lead to an accelerated decrease in spear thickness. Thanks to its natural earliness, Gijnlim is ideally suited for extra forcing techniques, such as anti-condensation sheeting, mini tunnels and thermal sheeting.

Gijnlim has a very high production potential and exceptional quality. The main grade is class 16-24mm. Producing an excellent closed tip, the spears are straight and smooth with high rust resistance. Gijnlim has full and heavy foliage. If correct attention is paid to disease control, the foliage remains sufficiently green and strong right into the autumn.

How To Grow – Crowns are best grown in an open, sunny site, but will tolerate some shade - full sun produces more vigorous plants and helps minimise disease. Any soil type is fine as long as it is free draining, remove any weeds and add plenty of aged manure or compost. When planting asparagus, choose fresh ground to avoid any build-up of pests – don’t replant an old asparagus bed with new asparagus. Space the crowns 30-45cm apart and spread the roots out evenly, but handle with care as they can easily break.

More Information – Crowns are available at the beginning of April. Potted plants are available from our nursery all year round. The prices listed are for quantities per thousand, if you wish to place a smaller order please get in contact with a member of the team.
