What are the pros? nice, mild flavor, easy grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are the best scallions I have ever used, and I use a lot of onions in cooking. The flavor is nice and mild and won't overpower the most delicate of sauces. Because the stems grow thick like small leeks, He Shi Ko is very economical. I use one thick stem where I might have previously used three or more smaller onions. The flavor is far superior to White Lisbon. I have not grown them long enough to know if they will survive the winter under straw.

Review:

I grew these our sandy, South Carolina garden in a 20' row, planting them in the end of September. Nearly every onion seed I planted seemed to have germinated and in late April I started harvesting them for everyday use by thinning them. I think they multiply! I still have a full row of bunching onions - the shaft is about 1/2-3/4" thick at this point but they are terrific for cooking and raw, and the greens are wonderful for flavoring broth (I freeze the greens in about 5" cut pieces to use all winter). They seem resistant to bugs and other pests. I am guessing I will be harvesting these until it freezes here in early November. They are not good "keepers", once harvested they need to be used within a few days.

Review:

I have planted several plantings of these onion and it's done well all throughout the season so far. I have picked many for salads and toppings. Has a nice flavor and I haven't had any bugs bother them at all. I have tried these before and they do winter over which is nice if you want some in early spring before anything else is ready. Had no problems growing in not so great soil.

What are the pros? Hardy Once Established

What are the cons? Poor Aphid Resistance

Review:

The first patch of this I planted grew well, if a bit slowly. It is near the green onions my wife planted from stems she bought at the store. The two look almost identical, which does make it a bit hard to justify buying seeds online when I could just plant stems. Still, this looked slightly prettier than the store bought version so I continued with it. I decided to plant a second batch. Unfortunately aphids descended upon the seedlings. Only one of the perhaps twenty plants which sprouted survived.
