Onion, Welsh (Allium fistulosum), Welsh Onion, packet of 50 seeds, organic
Family: Onion (Alliaceae)
Biennial often grown as an annual. 90 days from seeding to cutting.
(Welsh Green Onion, Bunching Onion, Spring Onion) Biennial, harvestable at any growing stage, despite their name native to Siberia, and heirloom monocot. The long stalks are thin, white, and mild-flavored. You can encourage more juicy whiteness by mounding soil up around the plants as they grow. Plants prefer rich soil in the sunny garden. Sow seed in fall or spring by sprinkling into the furrow and barely covering with soil, then tamping well and keeping evenly moist and warm until germination, which takes a week to 10 days. If you grow the onions in a flat, the tops may be cut back several times with a few weeks growth in-between, to encourage a thicker stem for ease of transplant. Transplant to garden at 12 inches apart between plants and 2 feet between the rows. These will bush up into comely clumps, harvestable, edible, there when needed.
