Leek

Allium porrum

Leeks are like delicate onions. They add their rich but subtle flavor to everything from creamy sauces to soups and stews. They're a must for any food enthusiast's garden.

Plant leek seeds directly in the garden a month before the last frost date, or start them indoors and transplant outside at the time of the average last frost. Mound soil around stems to exclude light and produce long white shanks. This frost-hardy plant can be harvested long after many other garden vegetables.
