The Leek, 'Allium Ampeloprasum Porrum', has been a staple in European kitchens for centuries. This sweet, mild onion relative won't overpower other flavors in a dish. The Leek is under used and over priced in the U.S. The sweet, mild onion flavor of leeks makes them a versatile addition to many recipes. Leeks can be used as key ingredients in foods or blended without overpowering drained soil. Water the planting bed regularly because uneven moisture will affect taste and texture. Harvest Leeks when about 1 inch in diameter, firm and not too bulbous at the base.
Scientific Name : Allium Ampeloprasum 'Porrum'
