Evergreen Bunching Heshiko Onion

€3,00 EUR

A tasty low-maintenance scallion Japanese Heirloom. Very popular in Asian cuisine and used in everything from rice, stir-fries, soup, salads and as a garnish. This variety is bulbless, divides and thus can be considered sort of a perennial. Its stalks are tender, nor overly pungent and very flavourful. It is a cool season crop so is best sown either in the spring for a fall crop or in the fall for a crop the following year. Use like scallions, then allow some plants to grow and each will have half a dozen narrow divisions in the fall. Great for autumn and winter.
