Buyers Take:

Nice substitute for onions! Leeks, like garlic and onions, belong to a vegetable family called the Allium vegetables. Leeks contain many of the same beneficial compounds found in these well-researched, health-promoting vegetables.

This Week's Forecast: Nice, thick base, which is what the customers look for.

 

Proper Storage: Leeks should be held as close to 0 °C (32 °F) as possible, and preferably away from products that produce ethylene. Hydro-cooling, crushed ice, and vacuum-cooling are the most common methods to promptly cool harvested leeks to 0 °C (32 °F).
