Werder Frucht GmbH harvests the first aubergines

Germany: Aubergines from Brandenburg horticulture

In the greenhouse in Fretzdorf (near Wittstock) in the state of Brandenburg, the harvest of aubergines has begun. The fruits, weighing between 225 and 350 grams and about 20 centimeters long, are currently being harvested in Nordbrandenburg in the greenhouses of Werder Frucht GmbH. “The time was ripe, our customers want mainly regional fruits and vegetables and we wanted to offer a new product after the success with greenhouse peppers from Brandenburg,” says managing director Petra Lack.

In Fretzdorf, the plants are grown under glass on about 0.5 hectares at Werder Frucht, at temperatures of some 16 to 21 degrees Celsius. The first seedlings - about 15 to 20 centimeters tall - were put into the ground in late February. Now the varieties "Kylie" and "Angela" have reached a size of about one meter. Each plant will grow about 100-120 fruits. With crop scissors, the ripe aubergines are cut off four times a week.

Our regional products are subjected to intensive quality controls and so we can guarantee our customers a range of fresh, tasty and healthy harvest products at all times.
