Sand Leek or Wild Rocambole (Allium scorodoprasum) 野韭菜

Hardy bulbous perennial/vegetable.  The spring first harvest is the best in term of flavour and the aroma!  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Prefer to grow in patch or group together rather than spacing out.  Propagate by seeds, bulbs or division.

強健耐寒的多年生球根蔬菜.  春天採收的韭菜是最香最好吃的了!  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處. 喜成群落生長,個別單獨長時反而長得較不好. 繁殖以種子,球根或分株的方式來進行. 這個跟一般農作的韭菜味道不太一樣,球比較明顯,香味比較濃,但不是太嗆辣.
