Ippon Negi Japanese Bunching Onion

80 days. Ippon Negi Onions look as if they're somewhere between a scallion and a baby leek, with a sweet, mild flavor. Wonderful fresh in salads and for grilling, their snowy white shanks can be extended upward by hilling soil around their stems as they grow to blanch them. (F1.)

One packet of about 100 seeds

An Onion a day keeps the doctor away! A millenial food source, Onions have antioxidant, anticancer, anti-cholestrol and anti-inflammatory properties as well as being one of the mirepoix triad, a flavor base in most savory recipes. Although they are cool-weather lovers, Onion seeds are best sown indoors, 2 to 4 weeks before the last spring frost date. They may also be direct-sown after all threat of frost has passed. Water regularly until the end of their growing season, then hold back when the tops begin to brown. When the Onion greens have toppled over, gently pull them out and leave them on top of the soil, weather permitting, to cure for a couple of days. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
