Allium fistulosum

HEIRLOOM. Japanese bunching onion with stalks you can harvest for salads or cooking.

This heirloom bunching onion has long, slender roots that are harvested as large scallions. Reaching about 12 to 15" tall, the stalk bottoms are pure white, while the pungent, flavorful tops are medium green. Use fresh or cook as you would onions or scallions.

Sow in average soil in full sun after danger of fro in spring. In frost-free areas, sow in fall. Sow thinly in rows 30cm apart and cover with 0.6cm of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist. Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days. Thin to stand 8cm apart when seedlings are 2.5-5cm high.

  • Pick green onions (scallions) when plants reach 6-8" tall, while the stalks are still white at the bottom and fairly thin.
  • When harvesting onion bulbs, about 100 days from sowing, bend the tops over when about ¼ of the tops have already fallen over and turned yellow. After a few days, pull the bulbs and cover them with the foliage to prevent sunburn.
  • Allow onions to dry in the garden for up to a week, then cure them indoors in a warm, dry place with good air circulation for 2-3 weeks. Then cut off the foliage, leaving 1" above the top of the bulb.
  • Clean the bulbs by removing dirt and any of the papery skin that comes loose when you handle them.
  • Put bulbs in mesh onion bags or old pantyhose and store in a cool, dry location. Check occasionally for any wet spots or mold and remove any damaged bulbs immediately to protect the rest.
  • All onions lose their pungency when cooked. To neutralize the flavor, sauté, parboil or microwave the onions briefly before adding to your recipe.
  • To minimize the discomfort of onion tears while chopping onions, work fast (but carefully!) and work closely to the kitchen fan. You can also use a food processor.
  • Besides fresh storage, small onions may be canned by the hot pack method.
  • Chopped, sliced or grated onions may be quickly dried in a food dehydrator and stored in air-tight containers on the pantry shelf.
  • Small whole onions may also be pickled, while larger ones may be used in mixed pickles or to flavor cucumber or tomato pickles.
