An old time favorite, this is one of the hardiest leeks you can grow.
The Giant Musselberg leek is a highly adaptable Scottish heirloom that hails all the way back to the 1800’s. It features enormous stalks with thick, succulent stems…hence the name. The stalks can easily reach two to three inches in diameter! But don’t let the size fool you. The stalks, while large, are still tender and tasty. The Giant Musselberg leek has an excellent, yet mild taste. Delicious in soups, stews, and more.
This variety of leek is slow to bolt, another reason it is so popular. It’s remarkably dependable giving you a prolific yield at harvest. If you grow veggies for market sale, you really must try the Giant Musselberg. It’s a great buncher for your market gardens!
Sow seeds indoors and transplant your leeks as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Winters over quite well.
