A french heirloom winter leek. Very hardy, it can overwinter in the ground for an early spring treat. The stock is rather short, but very thick and well blanched. Excellent for soups, quiches or gratin.

Start seeds very early (in February to April depending on your dedication). Transplant leek in May and nurture the plants in the following weeks: be sure to weed and water as needed until the plants size up a bit. You can harvest as of September, but leeks tend to bulk up the most in the last few weeks before hard frosts, so it is worth the wait.
