When Pears are Harvested and When They areRripe

When Pears are Harvested and When They areRripe

The maturity, more precisely the harvesting maturity and the eating ripeness, is the most difficult topic when it comes to pears and there is a good reason for this. In the case. There are good reasons to say that this topic makes the pear a bit difficult, because in the case of the pear fruits, the harvesting maturity and the eating ripeness are, in most cases, not only far apart from each other, but difficult to establish. The pear is a climacteric fruit; it matures on the tree, but also after the harvest, under the accelerating influence of the ripening gas ethylene, which it produces by itself, but also by other fruits (e.g. during storage, but also in the fruit bowl) .

Discount Offer: 20% off of Roses

If one asks me which flowering nature is most beautiful there is only one single answer to this question – "the rose!" It is stunningly fragrant with an incredible variety of colours and flower forms.

The Lubera fields are currently blooming and smelling wonderfully! Fragrant roses, Austin roses, climbing roses, floribunda roses, painter’s roses, shrub roses, rambling roses, hybrid teas, standard roses, ground-covering roses, dwarf roses, wild roses or historical roses. The diversity is tempting, and somewhere in your garden there is still room for a new rose.

 
Roses, strawberries and citrus thorns in Markus’s latest video

Markus was live from Germany in this week’s Lubera UK Facebook video (which you can watch now if you missed it), and although he was talking about citrus thorns, roses and strawberries, the plants are the real stars of the show!

 
Mandarin Orange Trees

Mandarin orange trees are wonderful citrus plants that have space on every terrace and every balcony. They live a little bit more in the shadow of the more popular orange and lemon trees. But the delicious fruits, which can be eaten directly off the tree, deserve more attention. Therefore, mandarin orange trees have a special place in Lubera’s citrus assortment.

 

Gooseberries: a fleeting British treat

Gooseberries: a fleeting British treat

We often hear about fruits and vegetables that were cultivated by the rich in their walled gardens, with an army of gardeners handing over produce to the cook, but gooseberries have a different history in the UK. They weren’t popular with the rich, but instead were keenly cultivated by cottage gardeners.

 
Conquer the Airspace in Your Garden!

There’s no more space in my garden...a low voice, a depressed look, a depressed mood. How many times do we hear this sigh? It’s a bummer, we would like to so much, but we cannot buy anything, everything is full...

 
Lubera UK Facebook Live Show 30th May

In the latest Lubera UK live Facebook video, Markus shares two new deals, explains how to prune lavender and how to deal with peach leaf curl, and tells us the heartbreaking story of the McIntosh apple.

 

The third Lubera UK Facebook live show

The third Lubera UK Facebook live show

In this week’s Facebook show, Markus was filming live in the garden of Lubera’s German nursery. It was raining! But Markus is a hardy plant, so he carried on with the show, answering questions posed by Lubera fans.

 

Rhubarb, Rhubarb

Rhubarb, Rhubarb

In her latest blog for Lubera, garden writer Emma Cooper takes a look at how rhubarb went from an expensive medicinal plant to an allotment staple, via a 'boom and bust' cycle that brought us Rhubarb Mania and the Rhubarb Express and left us with an enduring love of rhubarb crumble.

 

The second Lubera UK Facebook Live Show

The second Lubera UK Facebook Live Show

If you haven’t yet had a chance to see the video of the second English Lubera live Facebook event, then I can thoroughly recommend tuning in! Markus has once again recorded a really useful and interesting show, from his garden in Switzerland. We’re all very impressed that he records the show twice - first in German and then in his characteristic and entertaining ‘Swenglish’.

How an ornamental shrub became a fruit plant

Many gardeners know Actinidia kolomicta as a climbing plant with beautifully variegated leaves.

These develop first on the male plants, later also on the female plants and they are more visible on the older plants than on the younger ones. This is ideal for greening a wall, bringing colour and life in front of the concrete.

 
Three times paradise!

We are often asked why we use our brand name for our self-bred apple varieties (Lubera Paradis®) to claim paradise for ourselves. Perhaps we are a little over zealous! . This already goes a bit far, and perhaps the comparison with the quality of our Lubera apple varieties is also a little bit high. ;) However, paradise and the concept of the Paradis apples are much closer to our apple varieties than one might think...
