Description

Leek - Varna - Allium ampeloprasum (Porrum group)

Biennial Varnas have mild, sweet oniony flavor. The plant has hardy blue-green leaves, and thick, 7"-10" stems which blanch snowy white. These leeks are good for fall and winter harvesting and grow quickly. Use in soups, stews, and stir-fries. This is a standard variety for home gardens and market growers.

Did You Know? The leek is an ancient national symbol of Wales. In fact, a leek is the cap badge of the Welsh Guards, an infantry division of the British Army.

Soil & Water: Leeks prefer well-drained, limed soil, rich in organic matter. You can either fill a 6"-8" trench with compost and fill up the trench as the leeks grow, or plant at surface level and hill them up.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Keep tops trimmed to 2" and set out 2 weeks before last frost. In warm climates, seed is usually sown in summer for a fall harvest. Leeks overwinter in mild climates.

Harvesting & Storage: In freezing climates, leeks should be stored in cool, moist conditions. Many gardeners mulch the ground heavily in winter and harvest directly from the ground as needed.
