An outstanding garden variety with excellent winter hardiness and good resistance to rust. Leek Bartek is producing heavy crops of short stems with dark green leaves with an excellent flavour and tender texture when cooked.
Leek (Allium Porrum) is a herbaceous plant belonging to the family of Alliaceae, the same botanical family to which onion and garlic also belong.
Leek has been known and used for centuries for its medicinal properties, although nowadays it is used mainly as food or flavor.
Leeks are composed primarily of water, about 90%. They also contain dietary fiber, minerals—nickel, potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese, phosphorous; vitamins A, C and K, folate, and moderate amounts of vitamins of the B complex (B1, B2, B3 and B6).
