A cool-season annual, leeks are a member of the onion family and are a milder substitute for onions in almost any recipe. Instead of producing a pungent bulb, leeks are harvested for their thick leafstalks that resemble an overgrown scallion. Hardy in zones 2 through 10, leeks need about four months to mature—meaning they’ll be ready to harvest just in time for soup season! Choose between Eden Brothers’ three heirloom or organic leek varieties, or grow them all for maximum harvest.
