A relative of onion and garlic, American Flag Leeks taste like onions and will add color and flavor to any micro-salad or egg dish.

When chopped, leek microgreens smell like sweet onions, and their flavor is similar to mature leeks.

The finished microgreen is a long, slender green similar to miniature chives. Use leek microgreens as an onion substitute  — fantastic on hamburgers, soups, garnishes, and more.

A small amount of leek microgreens goes a long way, as the onion flavor can overpower a dish if used too heavily.

Harvest leek microgreens when they reach a height of 2 1/2- to 4 inches.

Leeks will re-grow after harvest! You can get at least two or three cuttings.

The thin green stem will more than not have the remains of the black seed resting at the tip. So the seed pod isn’t much of an issue when cooking. If it bothers you, rinse them off with running water.

Leeks are ready to harvest between 12 and 15 days after sowing.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for American Flag Leek Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 3.0 grams

1010 Tray: 8.0 grams

1020 Tray: 16 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 1.1 teaspoons

1010 Tray:  3 teaspoons

1020 Tray: 5.9 teaspoons

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Leek microgreens.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different size tray.
