Business Gift Ideas in Leek
Historically, many scientific names were used for leeks, but they are now all treated as cultivars of A. ampeloprasum. The name "leek" developed from the Old English word leac, from which the modern English name for garlic also derives. Leac means onion in Old English and is a cognate with the modern Swedish word for onion "lök".
Rather than forming a tight bulb like the onion, the leek produces a long cylinder of bundled leaf sheaths that are generally blanched by pushing soil around them (trenching). They are often sold as small seedlings in flats that are started off early in greenhouses, to be planted out as weather permits. Once established in the garden, leeks are hardy; many varieties can be left in the ground during the winter to be harvested as needed.
