This is an all Heirloom, Non-GMO, giant leek. One of the best leek varieties--hands down! It's also a very cold tolerant vegetable; it will over winter just about anywhere. In zones 4 and above, we recommend starting 2 months before transplanting. These are best when 16 to 18 inches high; they will get bigger than that, but that's when they are at their best. Happy growing!!!
The Giant Musselburgh Leek is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
