The easiest to grow, it's not as dependent on day length as other leeks.

Much more disease-resistant than older varieties, it won't bolt at the first hint of warm weather!
78 days for full-sized leeks. Lancelot has come to the rescue of gardeners in all climates looking for an adaptable, easy, nutritious leek. Grow it as gourmet baby leeks (a great alternative to scallions!) or as full-sized leeks, packed with vitamins and mild flavor. You can't go wrong with Lancelot!

These blue-green tops reach 12 to 16 inches high, simply packed with nutrition. They hold up well before and after harvest, showing good weather resistance and refusing to sacrifice their flavor or texture even if they have to wait a bit before being picked. They won't bolt in the heat nor keel over at the first hint of frost, and are far more resistant to disease than older varieties.

But Lancelot also makes a superb baby green, a good choice in winter and spring as an alternative to scallions. No matter where you live or how you want to grow it, Lancelot is the leek of choice! Bunch of 60 plants.
