After propagation, the root ball lettuce plants continue to grow in channels at a height of 1 meter. The plants obtain their nutrients from the nutrient-rich water flowing through the channels. Lamps suspended above the water channels give exactly the right amount of heat and light. The lettuce plants start at the back of the greenhouse and move further forward during the growing process. Once in the front, the seedling will have developed into a whole root ball lettuce, which is sent off to the supermarket immediately.
Our ways of cultivation enable us to deliver the freshest root ball lettuce all year round. A product which stays fresh even longer after purchase, thanks to the root ball. By watering the root ball lettuce a little every day, it stays fresh for a week longer than ordinary lettuce. During this time, the lettuce loses none of its crunch and flavour.
