All varieties available
Baltussen cultivates robust leek plants in Asten, where the crop yields are systematically high. Customers can choose from a wide and complete range that includes all leek varieties.

Cultivation methods
Baltussen uses three different cultivation methods in the Netherlands: greenhouses, tunnels and open-ground beds. The typical growth cycle for a leek plant is 10 to 12 weeks. Once harvested, the plants are sorted by hand. This ensures consistent quality.
