Certified Biodynamic

Low growing extremely hardy leek with thick white shaft and blue-green leaves bred for wintering over outdoors. It usually makes it through the winter well to zone 5 and can come through in zone 4 with a good snow cover. Winter crops may need deer protection, as they grow sweet in the cold and attract grazing.
