About Markus Kobelt
I am half a studied Germanist, who once had to realize that linguistics are a nice thing to study, but won`t bring you joy in life. But nevertheless I am still passionate about reading and discussing.
I am a specialized fruit and vine grower... yes back then one could study such a thing... because of this, fruits are one of my main focuses. Could it be this way because I like to eat with a passion?
I am a breeder and tinker. Since years I am breeding new varieties of apples, currants, gooseberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. It inspires me to create new things. You will feel this when you hear me talk about it... By the way the breeding-virus is infectious. My wife Magda is breeding roses by now...
I am a businessman. Within 15 years I have built the Lubera AG, which breeds and produces fruits, berries and roses. We are one of the few european tree nurseries who have their own breeding-pipeline. We are able to bring our own new varieties onto the market and we do this on an annual basis.
I am a passionate gardener. My famlily knows: there is no traveling without visiting parks, tree nurseries and so on. As an enthusiastic gardener one also has to have an educational streak: It is one of my goals in life to teach others the most difficult things in the most easy way. Because most of the time things are naturally simple and easy, very often things are just man-made complicated.
I am... no I will stop now. Watch my video blog for more...
