American Flag/Giant Musselburg Leek - The Gourmet's Onion

Scottish heirloom leek introduced in the 1830s near Edinburgh, Scotland with delicious, sweet, subtle onion flavor. Treasured in Europe for centuries and gaining popularity in America as it's flavor is discovered.

Very winter-hardy plants with blue-green white stalks 7-10" long and 1 1/2" in diameter.

Standard variety for home and market gardeners as it grows very uniformly. They withstand cold temperatures remarkably well and have become an important winter vegetable.

History

The leek has been cultivated since prehistoric times. Slowly spreading west from Asia to the Mediterranean and the British Isles, it eventually became the national plant of Wales.

Uses

Leeks are great for soups and salads. 

Growing Tip

Leeks are grown in trenches so that the leaf bases can be covered with soil in order to increase the size of the white portion.
