Leek, King Seig #2051
(85 days) Cross between King Richard with Siegfried Frost leeks. Sieg appears to have inherited the most from Siegfried. Its shanks are intermediate between the long King Richard and the short Siegfried, about 6″ long but with a wonderful 3″ thickness for a wide edible area. It also has some of Siegfried’s delightful blue-green coloration and delayed maturity. A good candidate for overwintering in some areas. Certified organic
Leeks require a long growing season, so must be started indoors at least 6 weeks before the last frost. Sow seed 1/8-1/4″ deep in soil-less mix in flats. When seedlings are at least 1/4″diameter, harden off and plant out approx. 6″ apart in fertile, moist soil in sun.
