Leek Below Zero is a high quality British bred leek with good vigour and very good extreme cold tolerance that can withstand the harshest of winters.
Below Zero produces quality long length white shafts with erect dark blue-green erect foliage, and offering good disease resistance.
Harvesting time will depend on sowing time, but generally from the new year right through to the end of April. The leeks will store well once picked if heeled in.
