  • Lubera Easy Tip Based on our experience in the variety tests but also in customer service, we have awarded this plant with the title “Lubera Easy Tip”. With this designation, we emphasise only those plants that according to our experience work (almost) everywhere; they are easy to grow and bear fruits or produce flowers quickly and without problems. These are plants that can be enjoyed immediately and without effort once planted.
  • Lubera Breeding This plant was bred by Lubera in Switzerland and placed on the market after extensive testing at our facilities in Buchs (CH) and Bad Zwischenahn (D). In 20 years of work, Lubera's founder and breeder Markus Kobelt has bred more than 80 of his own new varieties for the home garden; they all have the goal of providing you, our customers, with more experience and flavour, easier growing and more resistant, more robust varieties.

Hi Carol, sorry for our late reply. In mid-europe the bees will have always enough apple pollen with them to garantee a polination. Kind regards from Switzerland

Patio friut trees (Sonja Dreher)

the Malini trees normally don't need pruning. Pruning would enhance growth and this is not want we require from the tree.
Only if very long shoots arise, it is necessary to shorten these.
You can do this directly in summer, or during the winter in frost-free periods.

kind regards
your Lubera Team
