2301-UT Allium porrum

110 days from transplant.

A French heirloom variety, named after the blue tinge in the leaves. A hardy variety that just might overwinter in Zone 3B gardens, although I tend to get them
into our soups before too much snow. Start leeks early (Feb./Mar.) and keep trimming the leaves to 4"-6" to give them a sturdy start. Transplant into a 6" trench to lengthen the white shank, hilling them up as they grow (Eliot Coleman makes holes with a dibbler and drops the seedlings in, allowing soil to naturally fill in the holes over the season).

2302-CO  Allium porrum 75 days from transplant. Quicker to mature than Bleu, but not nearly as cold-hardy (only withstanding light fall frosts). Grow the King as a summer leek, saving Bleu for your winter eating. Long shanks don’t require hilling; minimal bulbing. ~400 seeds/g CERTIFIED ORGANIC
