Learn About Three Cornered Leek


In this short video Marcus Harrison from Wild Food Mentor talks about Three Cornered Leek (Allium triquetrum), its history and use as a wild edible plant.

It was introduced into Britain in the 19th Century, and is now endemic in the South West of Britain, and can be found also in the South East.

It looks a bit like grass, and has a keel down the length of it, which when crushed has a very definite garlic smell.

It is considered the nearest species we have in the wild to garlic chives, however it does have an aftertaste of leek, and is excellent mixed in with potato salad.
