Detailed Product Info

The leek is a national emblem of Wales. According to legend, or perhaps due to a Shakespearean reference, Saint David ordered his Welsh soldiers to identify themselves by wearing the vegetable on their helmets in an ancient battle against the Saxons that took place in a leek field. It is still worn on St. David's Day each March 1st. This variety produces heavy, dense, stout stalks that sweeten up in the fall/winter.
