Sow seeds in early spring for summer use and in July or August for fall and spring use. Plant 1/4” to 1/2” apart and 1/2" deep in rows of 2” to 3” bands in well- drained, sandy and limey soil. Any organic material should be well composted. Provide regular shallow cultivation to reduce weed competition. These are “bulbless” bunching onions and may be harvested as they reach a size for practical use. Continue harvesting as needed. Best if grown fast with adequate water.
Bunching onions are hardy and take up very little space.
Few pests affect Japanese bunching onions.
Widely used raw in all manners of salads, garnish for soups and stews, and in Chinese cooking and stir fry.
