A large, reliable Scottish heirloom that has been around since 1883. Exceptionally hardy with an excellent flavour and a tender texture. Perfect for colder climates.
[105 days from transplant] The Musselburgh is a large, mid-season leek well beloved in Britain for its mild flavour, tender stalks, and excellent tolerance to cold. It also happens to be one of the larger leeks, averaging 9-15" long by 2-3" in diameter, with just one leek providing a more than ample portion for the average soup or stew.
A biennial grown as an annual, leeks are one of the most treasured winter vegetables because their frost-hardiness will allow a gardener a fresh supply of onions all winter long. Musselburgh leeks are easy to grow, require next to maintenance, and a rarely bothered by cold, heat, or pests. Great for beginning gardeners!
