A close cousin to onions, garlic and shallots, Autumn Giant Leeks (Allium ampeloprasum) are extremely cold weather hardy and can be harvested late into the fall. Dark green leaves with creamy white stalks are mild and somewhat sweet in flavor. Perfect for soups, salads and stews! (100-120 days)
Each packet contains approximately 400 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Easy to grow and frost tolerant. Sow directly into prepared beds 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost. Try broadcasting over a wide row and gently rake or tamp to a depth of 1/8 inch deep — barely cover! Grow in full sun and cool conditions with temperatures under 75˚F.
Pull or fork from the ground when stems are one inch or larger in diameter. In cold climates, you can continue the harvest by mulching heavily around plants.
