Leek

Tozer Seeds have been leading the market with our open pollinated varieties and have now expanded and improved our range of hybrids. The results of many years of breeding are now becoming available, with many new varieties due for release within the coming years. Market standards require leeks to have a dark green, robust, thin leaf, accompanied with easy to peel leaves and bulb free shanks. We are convinced our new varieties will be able to compete with the leading varieties in the world market.
