Early full-sized leek variety white shanks growing up to a foot long. For baby leeks, plant closely together and harvest at finger size. Will overwinter in moderate climates.
Planting Instructions: Sow in early spring about 6 seeds/ foot then thin to about 6”. Seeds should be planted at a ¼” depth. During the growing period hill the plants with soil 2 or 3 times, higher with each hoeing. This forces the leaves higher up the plant resulting in extra-long blanched stalks and a much greater edible portion.
Sun: Full sun Germination (days till sprouts appear): 7-10 Life Cycle: Annual Days to maturity: 75 Spacing: 6” Germ Rate: 79%
