Leek is a hardy, vigorous, biennial plant. Leek has been known and used for centuries for its medicinal properties, although nowadays it is used mainly as food or flavour. In the first season of its growth, long linear leaves arise from a compressed stem or stem plate; the thick leaf bases overlap and are arranged concentrically in a nearly cylindrical bulb. A tuft of fibrous, shallow roots grows from the base of the stem plate. The edible parts of the leek plant are the light green stalk (or stem) and its white bulb.
