Abstract:
The germination, growth and quality of Aster tripolium L. was analysed to study cultivation of the wild leafy plant into a commercial vegetable crop. Soil type and soil condition (non-saline, brackish and saline)were basically proved in relation to germination capacity, yield and plant behaviour with respect to external and internal quality aspects.

Germination at constant and variable temperature regime resulted in the best figures for temperatures between 21° and 17°C only within non saline conditions, For both, riversand and sandy loam plant growth was established with the best results for non-saline conditions in sandy loam. Ageing diminished plant quality demonstrated for external as well as for internal analysed parameters. The rather easy domestication and the available variation offers all possibilities for the development of Sea starwort as a new vegetable crop.
