Cultivation & harvest

The high-yield harvest of salanova is favored by a particularly sunny location and a permeable and nutrient-rich soil.


The salanova has a very special feature in its use: it can be prepared with only one cut, because the leaves have the ideal size and do not need to be trimmed. The most common use of salanova is as a salad. Either alone or mixed with other types of lettuce.


If the lettuce is wrapped in a damp cloth, it can be kept fresh in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator. At this point, the Salanova differs from other varieties in that it has a longer shelf life.
