Ippon Negi Onion Seeds ON588

ON588A - Ippon Negi

Regular price $4.99 $0.00

Allium fistulosum. Negi is one of the kyo-yasai — traditional Japanese heirloom vegetables dating back to the Edo period in seventeenth century Kyoto. This onion is technically a scallion, but they can be large enough to resemble leeks. This is why they are sometimes confusingly called Welsh onions. The hollow leaves grow to 60cm (24") long, and the white shanks can be extended by hilling up soil around them as they grow. Ippon Negi onion seeds produce a vegetable with crisp texture and mild flavour. They do not form bulbs at the root end.

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.
