Evergreen Bunching Heshiko Onion (Heirloom, 65 Days)

Heirloom. Produces no bulbs and also divides and thus can be considered sort of a perennial. Can be sown thickly (20 seeds per square foot) either in the spring for a fall crop or in the fall for a crop the following year. Use like scallions, then allow some plants to grow and each will have half a dozen narrow divisions in the fall. 

400 seeds  

Please note that germination rates for alliums (onions/shallots/chives/leeks) decline rapidly. We strongly encourage you to purchase new seed each growing season.

PLANTING

Allium fistulosum

Germination: 5-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75ºF. 

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4" deep

Sowing Indoors: Start 8-10 weeks before last frost with soil temperatures 60-75ºF. Sow in flats 1/4” deep, 1/4” apart. Transplant seedlings out mid/late spring, 2-6” apart. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Seedlings size should be about a pencil thick at transplanting time.

Sowing OutdoorsEarly to mid-spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55 ºF. Sow 1-3 seeds per inch, thin to 2-6” apart. The larger the bulb size the more space. 

How much does a packet plant: 15-30 foot single row  

Harvest- Stop watering a week before harvesting. Pull out when necks soften and start to fall over. Cure them in the sun for a few days then finish drying them out of direct sunlight, in a warm area, and in single layer so air can circulate around them until the neck is dry. Store in a cool dark place with 35-40ºF temperatures and 65-70% humidity.

Tips- Needs fertile, well drained soil. Amend with compost or apply organic granular fertilizer. Adequate water is very important for optimum growth, 1" per week.

Wonderful flavor

I planted the bunching onion seeds in a flat of potting soil, and kept it moist. Within about a month, I transplanted them to my garden. Within another month, I started harvesting them. Delicious! Yesterday, I thinly sliced a couple and put them in my sandwich. They gave it wonderful zip!

Poor germination

Even the replacement melon seeds produced only one plant. Had better results with pepper seeds. Onion seeds were so so. Sorry to report germination problems. Thanks for asking.

Hi Mary, I am sorry you had poor germination with the replacements as well. Our germination testing showed 85% germination for those seeds. I refunded your account for the seeds you bought. Thank You - Happy Gardening! Deby
