Zermatt Leek Conventional & Organic

Zermatt Leek Conventional & Organic


85 days. This Swiss Giant type is very early maturing in its class, providing a nice, upright habit with long shanks. Especially sought after for baby leek production, weeks ahead of the listed maturity; try a denser planting, thinning baby leeks as needed until you achieve proper spacing. Left to mature, the disease-resistant, strong based leeks can hold in the field well into the cool season.

Days to maturity are calculated from transplant date.

• Leeks are a frost-hardy cool season crop requiring a long growing period
• Best growth is achieved with fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0
• Plant in a trench 5 inches deep and wide, work in 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet
• Blanch to increase the length of white stem by gradually filling in the trench as the leeks grow

Direct Sowing
• Thin to the strongest plant when 4-5 inches

• Sow up to 10-12 seeds in a 4-6 inch pot
• If tops reach over 5 inches before transplant, cut to 3 inches
• When planting out carefully separate the seedlings and place in a shallow trench
• Fill trench around seedlings and water in well

Harvest & Storage
• Harvest anytime the leeks are 1/2 inch in diameter or larger
• Store at 36°F and 95% relative humidity
