Detailed Product Info

Although, with a little imagination and a lot of squinting, this leek could look red (light pink flowers), white (blanched bottoms), and blue (green-blue leaves), it's a bit of a stretch. Originally called the Flag Leek because its tall, broad stem resembles a miniature but sturdy flag pole, its title was later decorated with a dose of patriotism somewhere along the way. This variety produces heavy, tall, wide stalks that sweeten up in the fall/winter.
