Mini Veg

These are mini leeks. It is the first time I have grown any of the products which have been marketed as "mini veg". I'm not sure what to make of them yet, are they a specific variety? I planted them in Autumn and so far they are about 1cm thick. I have plenty of "real" leeks to be going on with, but I was wondering if anyone has tried these "mini veg" and with what results?

I tried growing sweetcorn "mini pop" this Summer, but I left them too late and they were too woody.

Any comments on mini veg would be appreciated. Posted by Picasa
