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:

We tried growing these a year before, but they were in too much sun and it think they got too dry. So we tried them again this spring, more part shade, next to a north brick wall in fairly constant damp soil and they have thrived!! They can get pretty large, but are not the fastest growers. They are still alive and doing okay today (January 31st) and we've been harvesting one or two a week. Note: They can be really hard to get out of the ground--a small shovel or trowel is a must! Enjoy!

Review:

This was the first leek variety I grew when I began gardening 10 years ago. I have grown other varieties since, and enjoyed them all, but this is the one I keep going back to. Giant Musselburgh Leeks consistently grow to a good size for me, they are hardy and flavourful, and can be harvested well after the first hard frost and snowfall (which in our region, can sometimes happen in September). I start them indoors in March and they hold up well to being transplanted into the garden in May. I always end up with plenty for our family, and plenty to share with others. Recommended!

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.
