These Leeks when mature grow next crop from the root. They do not grow as big & fat as the normal leek but taste the same

I have some of these also - they're excellent to have around. Always something for the pot - especially if you run out of onions (which are really a broadacre crop - it would be quite a feat to grow enough onions to supply your home for a year - you really need a a field).
Yes I always break mine up, dont think they would grow very big if left as one but have not tried.
So do they need to be broken up and re-planted each year?
Elaine mine sit in the garden all year, though they do grow best in the winter. They can be eaten before they produce babies but this time of year the offshoots form which I use for the next planting - the main stem can still be eaten.
Ah, that's what they look like! So far I have just 1 stem, so it's a big one with lots of babies ... Do you lift the clump each year Jane? Which one/s will you re-plant? Does it grow over summer or do you have to store the planting material in the fridge?
