That's because hortalissa is Spanish for vegetable, while the Catalan is hortaliza.

I'm afraid you mixed up the Spanish (hortaliza) and the Catalan (hortalissa) words. If I remember correctly, there are no words in Spanish with two s in a row.

See http://www.diccionarios.com/ for a Catalan-Castilian Spanish, Castilian Spanish-Catalan Dictionary.
