Growing

Lollo bionda is planted in rows, 25-30 cm apart. It can be harvested after around 6-7 weeks, when it is around 15-20 cm tall.

Nutrients

Because of its green leaves, lollo bionda contains much fewer carotenoids than lollo rosso. Apart from this, like lollo rosso, lollo bionda contains vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, magnesium and iron.

Preparation

Lollo bionda must be washed thoroughly before eating, as soil often accumulates in the curled leaves. The outer leaves should be removed. The lollo bionda can then be prepared. Its curled leaves make it ideal for decorating buffet platters.

Storage/preservation

Sprayed with a little water, lollo bionda can easily be stored in the fridge for a few days.
