Leeks, like garlic and onions, belong to a vegetable family called the Allium vegetables. Since leeks are related to garlic and onions, they contain many of the same beneficial compounds found in these well-researched, health-promoting vegetables.
With a more delicate and sweeter flavor than onions, leeks add a subtle touch to recipes without overpowering the other flavors that are present. Although leeks are available throughout the year they are in season from the fall through the early part of spring when they are at their best.
Taking advantage of the fact that Iran is a 4 seasons country, we, at PrimFruit, have started our Leek Packaging and export line. Our main market is CIS countries, Gulf countries, and India.
