Blue Solaize Leeks
An heirloom variety from France, that holds up well over the winter. The blue solaize leeks are blue in color at full maturity. Then will turn shades of purple in cold temperatures. Great in salads, soups and as any substitution for the generic leek variety.
Beautiful French heirloom, truly blue-colored leaves that turn violet after a cold spell. Very large, 15-20" stalks, sweet medium-long shaft, extremely hardy. Good for short-season areas and winter harvest. 100-120 days from transplant.
