“Selected out of ‘Delft’ for a propensity to self-propagate by cloving garlic-like offsets around the root plate. A real “”permaculture leek”” if harvested by carefully cutting the leek above the root or allowing unharvested leeks to flower before cutting back. New leeks appear in clumps around the base of each mother plant, forming long tender shanks in autumn. Farm Original Variety!”
