Leaves are a medium green with a nicely elongated stem 20-22.5 cm (8-9") long and 5-7.5 cm (2-3") thick. The mild tasting, white stems are absolutely delicious in stews, soups and other dishes. An essential component in European cuisine.
HOW TO GROW

315 seeds/gram Leeks are a long season plant so start seed indoors in February and early March. Sow the seed 7mm (1/4") deep in a soil-less medium and keep at 20C (68F) during germination and growth. Transplant seedlings outside later in the spring when they are around 20cm (8") tall. Space the transplants 10-15cm (4-6") apart in rows 30-45cm (12-18") apart. Seed can also be sown directly into the garden in April through June.
