This may be a bold statement but this hybrid lettuce has a place in the salad hall of fame, that is for sure. Developed throughout the 1990’s by Marco Moore and Egber Smits for Dutch seed company Rijk Zwaan, was bread from two varieties over the course of a decade to produce 10 hearty and beautiful varieties of lettuce. From a growers stand point, this lettuce is the ultimate in terms of versatility. It is a one cut and ready, high efficiency, high yield and all around stunner. It was developed for the baby leaf lettuce market and it delivers, every time. Did I mention versatility? Salanova is a great hydroponic crop and can be just as easily grown in rows out in the field.
