Scottish variety introduced in the early 1800s. Enormous leeks that are 9-15″ long by 2-3″ in diameter. Tender white stalks, dark blue-green fan-shaped leaves. Mild flavor, stands winter well. Good buncher for market gardens. 80-150 days from transplant
Leeks require a long growing season, so must be started indoors at least 6 weeks before the last frost. Sow seed 1/8-1/4″ deep in soil-less mix in flats. When seedlings are at least 1/4″diameter, harden off and plant out approx. 6″ apart in fertile, moist soil in sun.
