Leek : Baby Primor
Fast maturing for summer harvests
Bred in France for premium fresh markets, we import Primor for extra-early yields of top-quality, non-bulbing leeks with tender-sweet, snowy flesh. This vigorous hybrid germinates quickly and sizes up fast for ample summer harvests. You'll have lots of leeks to pull as 1/2" thick babies and grill to sweet succulence, or grow to maturity as long thick bulbless shanks full of juicy flavor. A marvelous French specialty.Amaryllidaceae Allium ampeloprasum
Leeks are biennial and will produce their spectacular flowers in their second spring. It's easy to save Leek seed, simply leave the best plants in the ground instead of eating them. Save the seed from at least 12 plants to ensure enough genetic variation.
Leeks are cross-pollinated by insects, so should be isolated by one mile from any other varieties (fortunately there are not likely to be any others nearby). These will produce seed in early summer.
If you need the space for another crop, you can dig the seed leeks from their bed in early spring and move them to a convenient location.
