This British bred variety is fast growing, making it ideal for harvesting as 'baby leeks' just 10 weeks after sowing. Sow them thickly and lift the leeks as they reach spring onion size for a delicious 'out of season' crop. With a milder flavour than spring onions, Leek 'Nipper' makes a fabulous addition to stir fries and salads. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 20cm (8").
Leek 'Kong Richard'
Allium porum, Leek 'King Richard'
A particularly early cropping variety that can be lifted by July from the very earliest sowings, but will easily stand until Christmas from a later sowing. The long, slender stems of Leek 'Kong Richard' are full flavoured and ideal for slicing. This RHS AGM variety can also be grown close together for delicious, succulent mini leeks, but is best harvested by Christmas as it is less hardy than some other varieties. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
