The Seed Savers Exchange - This hardy winter leek has a luscious, mild flavor and produces stems that measure 3" or greater. Plants grow tall and thin and bunch nicely. Longtime Seed Savers Exchange member Suzanne Ashworth began sharing this variety after she received it in the early 1980s from Esther Cook, a Sacramento-area gardener whose family had brought it to the United States from Yugoslavia. Esther had entered the leek in a local fair competition where Suzanne, one of the judges, proclaimed it “just what a well-grown leek should be.” 120 days.
