An allium vegetable, just like onion, garlic, shallots, and scallions, leeks are native to Central Asia. These are abundantly cultivated in Europe too. Sweeter, more delicate, and less pungent in taste than onions, leeks have a very subtle presence in a dish to which they are added. Leeks are full of antioxidant agents such as flavanoids which are most concentrated in the bulb and leaves adjoining it. Extremely rich in kaempferol, a flavanol that produces Nitric Oxide(NO) that dilates and relaxes blood vessels and protects them from damage. Another very important nutrient found in leeks is folate, helpful for a healthy cardiovascular system. These also comprise nutrients and minerals like Vitamin A, C, E, K, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium along with anti-inflammatory properties. Leeks are specially beneficial to expecting mothers as its intake reduces the chances of neural tube defects in newborns significantly.

Leek is a versatile vegetable and can be consumed in a variety of ways. Be it raw in salads, in stews and soups, in pizzas, pasta, and fried rice or simply blanched to be added to your favorite dish. Leeks can be had as and when and how you like.
Growing guide for Leek Seeds

Planting instructions

The easiest method is to sow seeds directly into the ground.

Seeds are best sown in rows that are 30 cm apart and around 1 cm deep. Sow seeds but not too deeply on the trench. Cover with stain, water, and label for your convenience. After 4 to 5 weeks when the seedlings have foliage, thin to leave plants every 15 cm

Growing Requirements

watering

Leeks require regular watering for optimum development and should be watered once a week by soaking the soil to a depth of around 18 inches.

pests

Problems like leaf blighting, rotting seeds that are covered in mold, discolored root tips, leaves turning pale then yellow, stunted growth, wilted leaves, fluffy white growth on the base of the bulb which spreads up to the bulb to storage leaves etc are caused by pest attacks. The pests vulnerable to this crop are - Onion white rot, Leek rust, Leek moth,Thrips, Purple blotch.

soil

Leeks prefer well-drained and rich soil, high in organic matter with an optimum pH ranging from 6.2 to 6.8.

spot

The best place for growing leeks is where they can receive plenty of sunlight.

temperature

Leek seeds germinate best at a temperature around 25 °C (77°F).

how to harvest

Leeks develop slowly and take about 100 to 120 days to reach maturity.

Leeks are ready for harvest when the stalk has reached 3.5 cm (1 in) in diameter. Once plants get to roughly the size of a pencil, you can begin harvesting them.

Harvest by carefully loosening the plant with a garden fork so as to prevent any damage.

Be sure to harvest leeks before flowering occurs.

Leeks are best used right off but can also be stacked away in the refrigerator for several weeks.
