Salanova is a particular variety of lettuce sold under the "Rijk Zwaan" registered trade-mark which can currently be divided into two types: with incised golden and red leaves similar to "Lollo", or golden and red head multi-leaves. Salanova is marketed for the fresh market as a whole head product or as a "IV range" product, with bagged separated leaves. These lettuces are characterised by the fact that with a single cut the head separates into many identical leaves. Hence the "one cut and it's ready" slogan. This feature saves consumers a lot of time, guaranteeing healthy, tasty food (the leaves are soft and sweet). Salanova can be grown in the greenhouse or out in the field and keeps well after harvesting.
