An heirloom that was introduced in 1834, near Edinburgh, Scotland. Large, very thick stems; tasty mild flavor. Grows well in most locations; perfect for home or market; this old favorite has huge size and is very winter hardy.

Review:

I turned 10" of leaves into the soil last fall and planted these from the green house in February (approx 1/8 inch wide). They averaged approx 2.5 to 3 inches wide with 8 to 10" blanched stems at maturity. Great leek. Doesn't seem to mind the cold or the heat.

Review:

These leeks are incredibly easy to grow, didn't seem to be bothered by cold, heat, or bugs. I had them in the ground here in New Orleans from February to August and nothing seemed to bother them. They don't have a uniform thickness, I had everything from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches in diameter, but they grow very long and I was able to blanch them up to about 10 inches. Very delicious, mild flavor

Review:

I grow these every year for harvest from November thru March. Our Pacific Northwest winters don't bother them in the least. Of course it doesn't get very cold here, the 3 consecutive 10F degree nights last December didn't phase them. Neither bugs nor slugs bother them. I've never had one not survive transplanting. And I've never had one bolt. Just one thing, don't skimp on the compost and you will be rewarded.

Review:

These leeks are delicious. Long and wide leeks that are very cold hardy. Our biggest one was about the diameter of a soda pop can. We sold out of these at market every week.We even harvested these (with some difficulty) in Mid November while the ground was frozen. We chopped them up and put them in the freezer.
