Selecta to offer edible aromatics young plants

Selecta is having a major change within its perennials programme. As of now their aromatics assortment is available as young plants that are suitable to produce edible products. All young plants are produced by their partner Silze Jungpflanzen on areas that meet statutory specifications of vegetables cultivation. With Co. Silze, Selecta has a partner with many years of experience in producing fresh aromatics. Overall 80 m aromatics are produced in the area Papenburg with a share of 15% (12 m) of vegetative-propagated aromatics.

The sales season of finished aromatics has two peaks: between week 15 and 22 and week 48 and 1. Accordingly there are two peak periods in the production of young plants. Some Rosmarinus plants are sticked between week 43 and 45 for finished plants in week 15. Mint is sticked in week 2 for finished plants in week 15.

There are strict requirements for the production of edible aromatics young plants:
  • At least 10 shoots. One to two cuttings are used depending on the species in order to achieve this.
  • Limit on 3 active ingredients with a maximum level of 30%.
According to Selecta, these requirements can be fulfilled with young plants of their aromatics assortment.
