On March 9, 2021, Luxembourg Post issued stamps covering different themes namely fruit cultivation, sports, women, and some more. These stamps are beautiful in design and quite attractive for all stamp collectors.

25 Years of “Letzebuerger Landesuebstbauverain”

Today, the promotion of fruit growing in Luxembourg is one of the main objectives of the association. In Luxembourg, the level of self-sufficiency in fruit is currently 1%. Therefore, in the first instance, the farms are supported and motivated to expand the areas under cultivation. Fruit growers put a lot of work into their fields and cultivation areas before, during and after the harvest in order to achieve the best quality; much has to be done by hand in order to protect the delicate fruit.
