Organic Tadorna Leek
100 days to harvest | Allium porrum
We love leeks all summer but autumn is when we fall hard for their deeply savory, aromatic sweetness. Tadorna thrives all season and is more cold-hardy than most, so she is our go-to for fall leeks, especially. At Fruition, we sow our first leeks indoors in March, sowing more each month through early August to surround ourselves with delectable abundance all season. Transplanting as well as mulching deeply with straw, leaves or grass clippings increases the white, sweet stem that we love so well.
