Allium fistulosum. Grow this striking, red-stalked bunching onion at any time of the year. For the richest red colour, plant it in late summer to early fall so it is exposed to a bit of cold weather before harvest. If hard frost is expected, just mulch around the stems with straw. If whiter stalks are desired, simply hill soil up around them. Red Beard can reach 60cm (24") tall, with the red portion up to 30cm (12") tall. The flavour is very mild and the dark green leaves are tender.
Matures in 40-50 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
