History

Leeks (Allium porrum L ) are an old vegetable, probably grown first in Middle-East and developed later in all Mediterranean countries. The emperor Nero used to consume a lot to keep clear voice

Sensorial attributes

Our leeks are cultivated in the rich soil of west Belgium ( West Vlanderen ) following a method which ensures a very long white edible part that consumers like the most. They first seed in winter,, then, once a bit grown, they are trimmed and planted one by one in the ground, deep enough to ensure this long white shape. Later, during fiinal growing, they are covered again with soil to keep white.
Leeks are used cooked, in many plates likes soups, fondues.
