Grow Like a Head Lettuce.
Prepare in One Cut. Market as a Salad Mix.
The unique Salanova Core Structure, which took over 20 years for breeders to develop, allows Salanova to be grown as fully mature, compact heads that once harvested create the multitude of uniformly sized and shaped leaves. There are two distinct core structures.
Incised Leaf Types
Cross-section of Salanova Incised Core Type
While similar in shape to a standard head, incised type heads are more compact, so the individual leaves are tightly arrayed around the core. This allows the individual leaves to be separated with a simple cut just above the core.
Cored Types
  Cross-section of Salanova Cored Type
Larger and more rounded than standard lettuce cores, this core allows the individual leaves to lie nearly perpencicular to the core itself, resulting in a higher density of leaves per head. By using a specially designed cutter tool, the individual leaves fall freely from the core.

Salanova® in the News
Fairfield, Maine —
Salanova is the newest innovation in lettuce for the salad mix market. Taking classical plant breeders over 20 years to develop, Salanova's unique core structure allows fully mature, compact heads to be easily cut into individual uniform leaves. Because the heads are allowed to reach full size, they produce fully-developed flavor, texture, and color compared to baby leaf. For the first time, this line is available from Johnny's Selected Seeds to smaller U.S. and Canadian direct-market growers. Praised for its versatility, efficiency and yield, Salanova offers many benefits for the grower.
