First, the mini gardeners looked at the beneficial organisms in Petri dishes, after which the children were working with the cucumber plants. Meanwhile, the big producer told them about the third most popular vegetable in Germany. Because it is Busigel who can harvest about four million cucumbers a year. That's about 40 cucumbers from each plant, which are planted three times a year.
André Busigel is a vegetable producer in Albertshofen and, since 1998, he has focused completely on the production of cucumbers. Sales are made via the Gartenbauzentrale Main-Donau, under the brand Albert & Gundel. In addition to master gardeners Reinhard Busigel, Käthe Busigel, horticultural technician André Busigel and Mercedes Busigel, up to 17 people work in the company, depending on the season.
