Egyptian Walking Onions – Year Round Scallions!
Egyptian walking onions are spontaneous hybrid between bulbing onions and scallions. Rather than seeding as typical onions do they form small bulblets at the top tall stalks, these fall over with weight and root down, hence their other common name Walking Onions. We have found the variety Heritage to be evergreen the year round in our climate, providing green scallion tops throughout summer, when most scallions are in their dormant stage. The small bulblets can be harvested in late summer. These we have found to be excellent as pearl onions for cooking, pickling and adding to your martinis. Zones 4-10.
