Durabel is our favourite leek. It holds beautifully all through winter and is later than most varieties in putting up a seed stalk in spring (so it does not go as woody and fibrous as early). Durabel makes straight shanks without much hint of bulbing at the base. At harvest the shanks are thick and run 150-180 mm to the first leaf joint. A verasatile variety that can be used in cooking and it has a mild enough flavour to be used raw in salads. 300 seeds.
A very thick stemmed variety with a sweet onion flavour and green foliage. Leek needs to be well watered and lime the soil before sowing. Do not use too much nitrogen or stems get tough and won't keep over the winter months. A tasty vegetable for soups and stews. 300 seeds
A leek renowned for its flavour and long whitish-green cylindrical stems. Early to medium maturing that can be harvested through autumn and winter. Versatile in the kitchen with a mild sweet flavour. A very tall variety that allows plenty of stem for use in the kitchen. Not to WA.
