El Huerto del Abuelo
ENSALADAS VIVAS: A new and different concept. The idea is to take at home a piece of garden, so when you want to make a salad you are able “to grow" straight from the pot to the salad bowl. Fresher impossible!.
We are testing with varieties which allow be harvested from the outside without damaging the interior, continuing with the leaves production (multi-leaf). The harvest volume is around 2 -3 times the normal.
The plant is placed in 12cm pots. With almost harvest size, so that the customer will take at home as if it were a flower plant, having two or three varieties, let’s cut several leaves of each plant to complete the salad, the rest of the plant continues growing normally. Thus, and depending on the consumption you could have a "living salad” until for two weeks, or until it consumes the bud.
Gradually we will incorporate new varieties (different colors, textures and forms) so when spring comes, which is the best time for sales together with the summer, we will have completed the catalogue.
