Bulgarian Giant Leeks Part 2
I grew some Bulgarian Giant Leeks from seed this year, having seen them in a catalogue and thought they looked like a fun thing to grow.The length was superb! up to 3 or 4 feet of blanch and a further 2 feet of green leaves. Unfortunately as I blogged previously the taste was not up to much at all. I have since discovered that they are really not that frost hardy either. Most of the crop have bent over at the first sign of frost and they appear to be softening as well. I don't think I will grow them again, but they were a fun thing to try. My chosen variety of leek next year will be 'Oarsman' this variety was recommended to me by a man from the National Vegetable Society stall at the RHS Autumn show. I will give them a go.
