This high-quality leek produces tender, long white stalks that are about 2" thick, with a mild flavor. It is winter hardy and slow to bolt.
Carentan leek is a relatively rare French heirloom dating to before 1885.
Sowing Leek Seeds:
Sow outdoors 4 weeks before the last frost date, 1/4" deep and 2" apart in 6" deep trenches. Thin to 4" apart. Gradually fill in the trenches as the leeks grow. Or sow indoors 6 weeks before the last frost. Separate the seedlings and transplant outside after the last frost. Full sun.
