Net Wt. 400 mg (Aprox. 120 to 160 seed)
Organic seed for a very early, fast growing, open pollinated summer leek that can produce a white stem up to 10 inches long with light green, upright leaves. A beautiful full-sized leek with remarkable earliness and length. Upright plants have long, slender shafts and light green flags that are very straight and easy to clean. Often harvested young as bunching leeks and used much like green onions but sweeter. Requires a long growing season, matures late summer in Alaska. Will withstand a light frost but not winter hardy.  Highly prized by gourmet cooks, leeks are milder than onions and are the sweetest member of the onion family.
