Allium porrum   Germanname .Porree

The leek, Allium ampeloprasum var. porrum (L.), also sometimes known as Allium porrum, is a vegetable which belongs, along with the onion and garlic, to the Alliaceae family. Two related vegetables, the elephant garlic and kurrat, are also variant subspecies of Allium ampeloprasum, although different in their uses as food.

The edible part of the leek plant is a bundle of leaf sheaths which is sometimes called a stem or stalk.

Thank you for the hint.
BTW. all copy paste from today are from wiki, and I was in much hurry so forgot to mention the reference.
 I shall keep your point  in mind.
Regards
Nalini
