Rivera Salad

The Latin name of lettuce, Lactuca sativa L., derives from the words lac, meaning milk and referring to the white lymph, and sativa, meaning cultivated. This ancient lettuce variety is the result of a long selection linked to the historical vegetable gardens of Rivera, the horticultural complex situated next to the medieval walls of L'Aquila and irrigated by the water of Novantanove Cannelle.

Current Production Area in the Park: The variety has been found in L'Aquila.

Description: Characteristic vegetable of well-watered vegetable gardens.

Product Availability: It is sown from April to June and is gradually harvested from the second month after the sowing.
