An old Scottish heirloom that’s stood the test of time! Giant Musselburgh Leeks (Allium ampeloprasum) grow up to 15-inches long and have deep blue-green leaves with stout, 2- to 3-inch, snow-white stalks. Use as a flavorful and aromatic addition to soups and sautés. (80-150 days from transplant)
Each packet contains approximately 100 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Easy to grow and frost tolerant. Sow directly into prepared beds 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost. Try broadcasting over a wide row and gently rake or tamp to a depth of 1/8 inch deep — barely cover! Grow in full sun and cool conditions with temperatures under 75˚F.
Pull or fork from the ground when stems are one inch or larger in diameter. In cold climates, you can continue the harvest by mulching heavily around plants.
