Seed of Leek He Sent

The respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un visited the Jangchon Vegetable Cooperative Farm in Sadong District of Pyongyang on June 29, Juche 104 (2015).

He was very pleased to look round different places of the farm resembling a city.

When he dropped in at the hothouse filled with various kinds of vegetables, he cast his eyes on leeks on the exhibition stand.

The leeks had been cultivated from the seed he sent.

When he visited the farm in June the previous year, Kim Jong Un said leeks are good as a greenhouse vegetable, asked the farm to cultivate them and sent their seed to it.

Saying the leeks on display are very tall, he said he had let several units cultivate the leeks as they are delicious and medicative.

At that time an official of the farm told him what she felt in cultivating the leeks. While growing vegetables I saw such a variety with high yield as leeks for the first time. The people like them very much, she said.

Listening to her, Kim Jong Un beamed all over his face.
