I don't think there's an answer that is universal for everyone. Your starting weight, the rest of your diet, and your carb sensitivity are going to factor into your personal answer.
For one thing, 5 servings of asparagus is very different from 5 servings of avocado or banana (both in calories and carb count).
I've found that I can eat almost unlimited low-calorie/low-carb vegetables without impacting on my weight loss, but fruit is another matter. More than 2-3 servings of fruit (especially higher sugar fruits) and it can trigger the same (but slightly weaker) hunger/binge response as less healthy carbs. I've actually stalled my weight loss on diets of just fruit and vegetables, because of the amount of fruit I would eat..
You'll just have to experiment with different fruit/veggie proportions.
