Review:

This is an update to my January 2017 review of this bunching onion. It over-wintered without any protection what so ever in our Northern winter here in Montreal south-shore. We kept these in the ground and were able to dig them up when the soil started to thaw a little in very early spring (still had to attack the frozen dirt with serious tools to dig them up.) We used them in salads and stir fries and they were delicious! After a whole spring, summer, winter, spring again, summer again and now November, the last ones we dug up had grown new shoots bunched up with the initial ones, which tripled the harvest. Never really tended to them, rarely even weed their location. We couldn't be more happy with these. We'll grow them for as long as we grow vegetables. We use bunching onions a lot an every day in our cooking. We successive planted them every where we could for a continuous supply.

Review:

I started these indoors in February. Had good germination and grew them under the lights until April. I transplanted them outdoors and they have done well. We started eating the thinning in April and now are able to grab them when needed. These onions have a marvelous, mild, sweet flavor. They are our favorites for salads, pizzas, stir fries---really in anything where the flavor can be appreciated.

Review:

We had such a busy schedule last spring we tended our "must-have" crop attentively but neglected the ones we deemed less-important. This bunching onion was sowed late (1st week of June) in an area often flooded due to almost constant rain. The other variety we sowed never sprouted but this one did, at a good 75% which is fantastic given the conditions and timing. Because of lack of time again, we just casually transplanted it at the edge of a newly created bed. Just removed the sod and turned a bit the heavy clay. No amendments, no compost, no nothing. It thrived!! By mid-August we could add pencil sized ones to our salads. In November we enjoyed thick, juicy, delicious ones. We digged up what we could from the solidly frozen bed in December. There are still a good dozen in the bed (it's Jannuary) and I can't wait for early Spring to see how it survived our punishing winter like it survived our punishing treatment last summer.

Review:

This is my first year growing them. Last year, my crop of green onions was lost to onion maggots. I was expecting similar results this year but the thought of perennial green onions was just to good to be passed. Amazingly the maggots either found another gardener to pester or this variety don't appeal to them. The taste is fabulous and they grow vigorously, even in container. I'll try to overwinter them this year but I don't know how cold they can survive. We are VERY north. No matter the result, I'll be growing more next summer!
