This came to me unsolicited from a fellow breeder years ago–a beautiful F6 population of winter leeks, ready for selection into varieties with distinct traits. I’m passing this opportunity on to others in this F7 population, a wondrous blend of leek colors, leaf widths, shaft lengths and diameters. This is a real gift to the organic community at a time when OP leeks are disappearing and their quality is in decline. Breeding populations like this can help organic farmers quickly select new varieties suited to their needs and location. Farm Original Variety!
