Ishikura Onion

         
 
4 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Allium fistulosum) Popular and traditional Japanese variety for sukiyaki, soup and salads. Reaches enormous proportions (to 2½ feet tall, one inch across) while remaining tender and scallion-like. Never forms a bulb. Earth-up as for leeks to produce long white shanks. Very nice variety that we are excited to offer!

Best Bunching Onion Ever

What are the pros? Hardiness

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have grown these onions for several years, now, and they are my favorite bunching onion! I've had some grow as big as leeks and still retain their flavor without that "bite" to them that many get at such a large size. They have grown well in 100 heat, and over winter well, even in freezing temperatures. I have found that in my area, zone 9, they do best when direct seeded into my raised beds. They have handled the stress of thinning closely sewn clumps, and even being transplanted to another bed exceptionally well. I have tried most other varieties of bunching onions with varying degrees of success, but only this variety has never failed me.

What are the pros? Huge size, mild buttery flavor

What are the cons? Nothing comes to mind.

Review:

Huge size! Each one of these onions hit the 2ft mark and beyond. Started indoors in late winter and transplanted into raised beds (half composted cow manure/half topsoil.) Only fertilized once w/ Organic fertilizer early in the season. Wonderful in stir fry, soup, and scrambled (duck) eggs. A new staple for my garden. Thanks, Baker Creek!

What are the pros? Nice and soft

What are the cons? Longer lasting "onion breath"

Review:

These are bunching onions! I started seeds in February but I planted too many seeds per container and had some extra work dividing the tangled roots. I was late transplanting them in to the garden but still they pulled through. Got some pretty big ones, but none as big as leeks yet. They are bunching now in September. Taste is pretty good, a bit sharper than spring onions but not so hot. I guess it depends on the soil and watering too. Used it for stir fry and in salads.I noticed a bit longer lasting "onion breath" but it could be just me. I will grow it next year too!
