Alto Leek

5443 - Alto Leek. Early summer leek with a long, white shaft. Improved for greater uniformity and height. Very versatile; harvest early for lithe bunching leeks. Not a winter-hardy variety. Makes a delicious alternative to green onions either raw in salads or lightly cooked. Summer crop. Days to maturity: 75-85 days. Can be either direct seeded or transplanted. Direct seed soon as soil can be worked at 0.25” depth and 1” spacing, later thinning to 6” spacing. For transplanting, start seedlings indoors 12 weeks before last frost date. Transplant outdoors in early spring, planting so that only the top few inches remain above soil. Hill plants up at least two times during the summer for longer, blanched stalks

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
