Backlim is a 100% male hybrid that is ideal for white asparagus production in a temperate climate. This variety is also extremely suitable for harvesting in the second half of the season. Combined with the harvest of the early varieties such as Avalim and Gijnlim, Backlim can result in a long, regular harvest season. Backlim has evolved into the standard variety in heated growing systems. Backlim gives reliable yields and quality, both in covered and open cultivation methods.
Backlim has compact foliage that is not susceptible to lodging. Despite the fact that the foliage dies off naturally early in the autumn, a good store of reserves is built up for the plant.
