Review:

A few years ago I started these in containers in the spring and transplanted them to beds to give them more space. They quickly grew in the garden and had beautiful flowers that the bees loved. I left them in the garden, figuring the harsh southern CA summers would eventually kill them like everything else. But no, they have thrived for years and multiplied both from runners and volunteers from the flowers going to seed. They are so pretty in the garden that I've left them as an ornamental flower and occasionally pick them for onions. Last year we had a really hot, dry summer and I thought it was finally the end of them. Come winter, they had reemerged hardy as ever.

What are the pros? pretty, hardy

What are the cons? very pungent

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 thinnings in April and now are able to grab them when needed. These onions are VERY pungent. We try not to add them to anything where they will be eaten raw, as they easily overwhelm other flavors. The stalks are a lovely purple color. Overall, a fantastic onion, but more for cooking than raw eating. I'm looking forward to overwintering and replanting the side shoots of these onions.

Review:

I planted these onions last Spring (2012). I purposely didn't touch one of my rows and let the onions go through the winter. They made it through the harsh winter just fine (our average high was 19 degrees in Jan). In fact, they propagated (bunched up) very well. I separated them and replanted this Spring (2013). At the rate they propagated, I figure I'll have Red Welsh onions in my garden for life. They seem to be very hardy. About twice (or even 3X) the size of a typical green onion you find in the grocery store. They taste great. I highly recommend.

Review:

Planted these in Northern Illinois indoors back in March. We moved them outside in April/May. About half way through the summer they looked like hell and I thought they were a lost crop (especially with the 100 degree temps and drought we were experiencing). However, now, in September, they have come back tall, strong, and absolutely gorgeous. Not all of them have the red around their necks, but they are all tasty and lovely to look at in the garden. I will definitely plant these again.
