Germany company inaugurates 'XXL lettuce greenhouse'

German cultivation company, Scherzer Gemüse, had a new lettuce and herb greenhouse built on water. They held an open day this weekend. The greenhouse houses about two million lettuce plants, the growers shared on Facebook. You can see photos of the opening of this five-hectare greenhouse on various LinkedIn pages.

Earlier this year, German TV visited the 'XXL lettuce greenhouse.' Scherzer Gemüse stopped doing open-field cultivation as early as 2013. "In the years after communism fell, we increasingly stopped growing open field crops. Specializing in greenhouse horticulture meant our open field growers could include these products, such as radishes, carrots, and rhubarb, in their assortment," Stefan Scherzer told us last year. The growers also cultivate fruit and vegetables but in another greenhouse.

It is the largest, most modern lettuce greenhouse in Germany - it houses about two million plants that are grown ecologically sustainably and entirely pesticide-free.

And did you know: this month, we can already toast to one year of lettuce production there?
