Jolant is a brilliant leek variety with a long cropping period. It matures earlier than many other varieties, providing dense, mild flavoured leeks that can start being picked in August. Being a tough, hardy variety, these will sit happily in cold soil to provide further harvests well into winter. Another option is to lift some of the leeks much earlier, in summer, to eat as mini-veg bursting with flavour. Jolant is an easy to grow leek that grows vigorously and gives a high-density stem. It also shows good disease resistance. Sow from January to April to harvest from August to December.
This variety, together with all the other varieties in our RHS AGM Veg Seed Collection, have been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Such plants have been awarded this accolade after testing and assessment by the society, and is only given to plants that have proved to have excellent garden performance and worth growing.
