Characteristics 
• Uniform in quality and grades
• Ideal for peeled processing
• High production potential
• Very stable and strong foliage
 
Cultivation
Thielim grows best on fertile, well drained soils. Soils where flooding occurs are less suitable. Thielim performs optimally under warm and fertile conditions, giving high quality and high kilos. Extensive practical experience has shown that the best results can be achieved with a planting density of 3.5 – 4.5 plants per linear metre with a planting depth of 18 - 20 cm. Thielim performs particularly well under various types of sheeting and plastic mulch.
 
Product
Thielim has a very high production potential and exceptional uniform quality. The product has excellent closed tips and has little susceptibility to pink discolouration, broken or grooved spears. More than 70% of production is in the diameter class 16 - 28 mm.
 
The plant
The abundant foliage is erect, resistant to lodging and naturally resistant to foliage diseases. These qualities make also Thielim ideal for organic cultivation methods
