While its white bulb and tender green stalks may make it look like a scallion, the Sweet Garleek is actually something entirely new. A cross between garlic and a leek, it’s the latest vegetable from chef Dan Barber’s Row 7 Seed Company. The result of 10 years of selective breeding and testing, the Sweet Garleek intensifies the sweetness of the leek and the rich, savory taste of garlic (without the aggressive pungence). The entire stalk can be sautéed, roasted, grilled or even eaten raw. The plant is currently available to purchase at select Whole Foods locations in the New York City area. It will go on sale in the Northeast, mid-Atlantic and West Coast next year, and nationally in 2025.
