These onions had a really nice germination rate. I read another review that talked about trimming the tops to use, and I've been doing that since they were about 1 month old. I trim them every other week or so and use them in wheat bread, brown rice, etc. Since hubby loves to eat the bulbs only (with a cold beer of course) it's wonderful to use those tops instead of him discarding them in the garden. I have both evergreen and warrior. Warrior is bigger. They've been wonderful and I plan to do this yearly. Just remember that onion seeds don't save well for second year use, so grow all you got. The cut greens easily last a week in fridge, or are frozen for later use.
