Seed Exchange - Leeks & Edamame



I have TONS of Heirloom Carentan Leek Seeds (via Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds) that I am happy to trade for something else. The packet I ordered contains way more seed than I need. This is the description of these leeks provided by Baker Creek:

Long, thick (2 inches across); vigorous and fast growing; delicate, deliciously mild flavor; great fresh or cooked. The Carentan leek was mentioned by Vilmorin in 1885. An old European favorite that is becoming rare. Very adaptable and yields are good.


I also have Envy Soya Bean Heirloom seeds from Baker Creek that are perfect for Edamame! Here is the Baker Creek description on these:

Early 80-day variety is great for the north. Perfect for Edamame, fresh shelling or dried, nice green-colored beans have good flavor; developed by the late Prof. Edwin Meader, UNH




If you are interested in either of these seeds, please let me know. It would be great to make a trade with a seed you may have an abundance of! Email me at apollosonacres at hotmail dot com

Are you looking for something in particular, seed wise?

Nope, not really! I am open to anything we don't already have :)
