Allium ampeloprasum, Porrum Group
Though over 20 years old, this is still a trusted variety that produces decent yields of good quality leeks.
The medium length shanks (that’s the white part) are topped by dark, bluish-green leaves. The plants are healthy and slow to bolt, and show good rust resistance. With a harvest period from mid-winter to spring, Bandit is the ideal partner for Jolant (also available from Sea Spring Seeds), which can be harvested from autumn to early winter.
Approximate number of seed per pack: 100
