Bunching Onion Red
A perennial red skinned onion comprising a clump of small bulbs, each bearing long tubular leaves. Plants grow approximately 75cm tall and onions are 1.5-2cm in diameter with a mild sweet taste. Use like spring onions but harvest leaves only, not bulbs. Essential in Chinese and Japanese cooking, easy to grow and great for small gardens or pots. Allow to flower in spring and then begin harvesting again. The flowers are attractive to bees. Good companion for apple trees - said to reduce the incidence of black spot (scab).
