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 so hardy they are usually stored in the ground and harvested as needed (cover with mulch in cold climates). The outer skin may turn somewhat slimy in very cold weather, but the interior should be fine.
