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
Soil PH: 6.0-7.0, Ideal 6.4-6.6
Leeks need a deep, rich, fairly neutral soil. It should be well drained, because the plants will remain in the ground through much of the winter and are susceptible to rot in wet soil. They do particularly well in deep intensive beds.
Leeks can be planted fairly early in the spring, so gardeners often prepare the growing bed the previous fall.
