Thanks to our intensive collaboration with our producers from all of Germany’s significant growing regions, we offer a long, natural season with a correspondingly long harvest window. We have access to large quantities, we are as independent of the weather as we can be thanks to a high percentage of protected cultivation, and we can make plans down to the day. We cover the early season with high-quality produce from Greece and Spain.
In Germany our very long, natural season stretches from the Palatinate, greater Koblenz, and the Rhineland to the late cherry harvest on Lake Constance and the Altes Land region.

Thanks to our intensive collaboration with our producers from all of Germany’s significant growing regions, we offer a long, natural season with a correspondingly long harvest window. We have access to large quantities and are as independent of the weather as possible because we have spread out production to different regions. That means we can make plans down to the day.

Our rhubarb season begins in early March with produce grown in greenhouses and on fields with heating. From April we supply rhubarb grown outdoors under double foils. A particularly tasty variety is the raspberry rhubarb ‘Framboozen rood’, which is mild in flavour and with a pleasing colour. This variety makes up 95% of what we grow. The entire season runs from the beginning of March to mid-June.
