Product Overview

Allium ampeloprasum

The subtle onion flavor of this early variety gives gourmet flair to ordinary dishes. Leeks have been a staple in European kitchens for centuries!

Leeks' mild but rich onion flavor and cold tolerance make them a favorite in home kitchens and gardens. This onion relative has compact stems that thicken but do not form bulbs like onions. 'King Richard' produces extra long white stems early. Enjoy fresh, grilled, sautéed, and added to soups and stews. Cold tolerant to 20°F and can be left in the garden for an extended harvest.

Variety Info

Leek plants resemble a long, fat green onion. The white lower portion has a mild onion flavor while the green tops are stronger tasting. Cold hardy to 20°F.

Sowing Inside

RECOMMENDED. 8 to 10 weeks before your average last frost date.

Sowing Outside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date for late summer harvest, late spring for fall harvest, and in Mild Climates, late summer for the following spring harvest. Soil temperature should be at least 40°F, ideally 60°–85°F.
