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.
