Blanca grande tardia de Lerida 'CALÇOTS'

'Calçots' are the shoots which appear in spring after planting mature bulbs in autumn. They are similar to leeks in appearance, and measure about 2 cm in diameter and 20-25 cm in length once the leaves have sprouted.

Sow the seeds as for bulb cultivation. After harvesting, keep the bulbs and plant them again during late autumn. Harvest the 'calçots' the following spring.
