Tozer have recently introduced a series of new F1 hybrid leek varieties. These are the result of many years of breeding. They all have dark green, robust, thin leaves and are easy to peel with bulb free shanks. We are convinced our new varieties will compete with the leading varieties around the world.

  • A variety developed for the second early and main season growing period. The dark green foliage, erect leaf habit and excellent leaf uniformity make this an ideal pre-pack variety. Shank length and quality is characterised by smooth skin and compact finish with excellent weight potential. Lancaster is an excellent winter hardy variety with good bolting tolerance.
