Notes & Growing Tips: American Flag Leek seeds will produce best if planted more thickly on your growth medium. A small crop goes a long way, as the onion flavor can over-power a dish if used too heavily.
The pleasant mild onion flavor is a great compliment to any micro greens salad, and the shape is a contrast to most other microgreens. Excellent substitute for onions anywhere. Fantastic on hamburgers, soups, as garnishes, and more.
***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums. Results may vary.
