CERTIFIED ORGANIC SEEDS

Alto: Early summer leek with a long, white shaft. Improved for greater uniformity and height. Not a winterhardy variety. Makes a delicious alternative to green onions either raw in salads or lightly cooked.

Planting Tips: Leeks are hardy biennials in the onion
family. Choose appropriate varieties for summer, fall
and over-wintering. Direct seed as soon as soil can be
worked. Start transplants 10–12 weeks before planting
date. Harvest at any stage of maturity, but flavor is usually
best in fall after a few cold nights.
