Giant Musselburg

Allium porrum

HEIRLOOM Only the toughest leeks could come from Scotland, and this one rises to the occasion! Exceptional variety, very cold hardy with large stalks that grow to be 9-15" long and 2-3" in diameter. Mild and tender stalks with blue-green leaves.

A tasty allium with a long history of cultivation. The Roman emperor Nero listed leeks among his favorite foods and believed that they gave him a good singing voice. More recently, the leek has become a national symbol of Wales, with the Welsh enthusiastically integrating it into many of their dishes. A little less robust than an onion in flavor, leeks are used in stocks, soups, braised dishes, or caramenlized for a gourmet addition to pizza and quiche. Nutrients: vitamins A, K, C, B6, and iron.
