Sweeter, more complex flavor than other bunching onions. Upright plants with long, thick shanks. Resists leaf-curl and bulbing in hot weather.
Nabechan (the seed we use) is a traditional Japanese variety grown for its high quality. Can also be grown like a leek to create a unique large scallion known as “Negi” in Japan.
To grow larger scallions, thin out the seedlings. The more seeds/stems in the seedling, the smaller the produce. The fewer stems, larger bulb.
Use with the green stalks for continuous growth or pull the bulb and replace as needed.
DAYS TO MATURITY FROM SEED: approximately 40 Days
