Tasty and Natural Vegetables

The diversity of landscapes and climatic conditions in Garda Trentino is reflected in the variety of products that can be grown here.

Just think of the Torbole broccoli: being a plant of Mediterranean origin, you wouldn't expect to find it in Trentino. However, this nutritious and increasingly popular vegetable, recognised as a Slow Food, thrives even on the northern side of Lake Garda. The area of Torbole sul Garda is particularly suitable for growing broccoli, and it has been known here since the seventeenth century. Torbole broccoli is renowned for its sweet and delicate flavour, making it an excellent accompaniment to meat specialties like the traditional carne salada. However, it is an extremely versatile ingredient, also perfect for enhancing pasta and rice dishes, soups, stews, and salads. Equally versatile – almost by definition – are the potatoes. Here, we cannot help but mention the Lomaso potato, also known as Montagnina, a speciality of Comano, symbolising simplicity and resilience. As early as the mid-70s, the population of the Lomaso plateau recognised the great nutritional and cultural value of this agricultural product and jointly committed to its sustainable and integrated production. But in the gardens and fields of Garda Trentino, many other vegetables grow and thrive, lovingly harvested in numerous local farms, often following organic criteria. This production, small in quantity but truly remarkable in taste and quality, can be found directly at the farms or on the stalls of the weekly farmer's markets.
