ON572A - Apache
Apache scallion seeds grow just like all the other scallions, but has a bright purple base end that colours up early in the season. If left to mature, it will form a vivid pink bulb or salad onion. Its mild flavour and crisp texture make Apache a great candidate for adding colour and contrast to salads and sandwiches. Provide the frost protection of a cloche row cover, and Apache will grow slowly all winter long. Sow at three week intervals from March to the end of July for a continuous harvest. The quirky little onions are perfect for the market table. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

How To Grow
Choose sweet onion varieties for enjoying raw or cooked within a couple of months of harvest. Storage types keep much longer, and will last until the following spring in the right conditions. All onions are photoperiodic – day length triggers bulb development. Our varieties are all “long day” types, suitable for northern US and Canada.
