I'itoi Onions

(Multiplier type) This is one of the most incredible onions ever! Mature bulbs are small but the yield is phenomenal--each bulb produces a clump of up to 100 shallot-like bulbs in a season! This extremely rare onion variety was introduced by Jesuit missionaries to the native people in the Southwest's Colorado basin in 1699. The Native Tohono O'odham people had such reverence for them that they named them after their creator deity I-itoi, elder brother or Man-in-the-Maze.

Chefs adore the mild shallot-like bulbs and slightly spicy greens. We offer chemical-free bulbs grown by Pinnacle Farms in Arizona. Low-maintenance and super drought tolerant! (Winter protection is recommended in colder climates.)

There are approximately 65 to 80 starter bulbs in each 1/2 lb order.

Review:

Baker Nursery, now replaced by condos, in Phoenix, AZ, had a few Iitoi onions in 2003, and I purchased 2. I have not had to purchase any since. They grow nearly anywhere and quickly, like weeds. The flavor is noticeable in any dish, with less volume. They grow wonderfully in Gallup, NM, as well. A great choice for anyone who likes to add a grassy texture to any container planting, as a garden row crop, or under tress and bushes. Insects seem to shy away from these and the plants near the Iitoi onion. I plant them around all of the garden tomato and eggplant plants with great results, no insects and high yield of both Iitoi and fruits.

Review:

My onions weren't as prolific as they could have been, but I believe that is due to poor soil and being a novice desert gardener. I still harvested 4x more bulbs than I planted, so not a total failure. The greens are AWESOME in place of chives in cheddar chive biscuits. The onions themselves are awesome in stir frys or cooked with mushrooms to eat with steak. Despite my low yield, I can't wait to grow them again next year.

Review:

I've grown these for 3 years here in MN. They are basically maintenance free. Whole plant is really tasty. Lighter onion taste than most.
