JosephsGarden's Onion, Egyptian Walking x 100 Harvesting

Plant: Egyptian Walking Onion (Allium cepa var. profilerum) |

Growing in small out of the way patches all over the yard. I can start harvesting these a week after the winter snow-cover melts until mid May. Then in June the bulbils form on top which can be replanted to provide green onions for the rest of the summer. The flavor is robust but not burning.
