Leeks have a delicate flavor much like a sweet, mild onion and are highly prized for gourmet cooking. The tender, white stems, that can be as long as 10" (25cm), are used to flavor soups, stews and require several months from seed to harvest. Mature plants keep well in the garden where the ground doesn't freeze.
