Carentan leeks, also known as "Leeks de Carentan" in French, are a type of leek that originates from the town of Carentan in Normandy, France.
These leeks are prized for their sweet, delicate flavour and tender texture. They have a long, slender white stalk and dark green leaves that form a fan-like shape at the top. Carentan leeks are typically harvested in the winter and early spring months and are a popular ingredient in soups, stews, and quiches.
In addition to their culinary uses, Carentan leeks are rich in vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Overall, Carentan leeks are highly regarded for their unique flavour and versatility in the kitchen, and are considered a staple ingredient in many kitchens.

Long, thick stems on vigorous and fast growing plants. Delicate, and mild flavour is great fresh or cooked. Very adaptable and yields are good.
