Lilly's x Blaugruner Leeks
Colorado & Southwest adapted. Hardy, cold-tolerant culinary staple that tastes similar to an onion but sweeter and milder. Absolutely delicious sauteed in soups, omelets, savory breads, pizza topping more. Try carmelizing to increase sweetness.
Planting Instructions: In spring & fall, sow seeds outdoors 1/4" deep, 2-4" apart and keep moist until germinated. Thin to 8-12" apart. Or start indoors in later winter and transplant outside in spring.
Seed Saving Instructions: Choose plants to allow to flower & seed. Beautiful white umbel seedheads will form. Collect black seeds when fully dry and they easily fall into your hand. Store in a cool, dark and dry location in a paper or mesh bag.
