The Only onion you ever need
These Tree onions (Egyptian Walking Onions) grow taller than normal commercial onions and produce a cluster of miniature onions instead of normal flowers. You can pick these to use in salads or plant them to increase your onion patch. They're great as pickles too!
No need to buy Spring Onions
Masses of tasty green growth you can cut and come again to use instead of spring onions. Delicious flavour and fantastic when the wide hollow stems are filled with cottage or cream cheese
A Versatile Multiplier Onion - Grow extra bulbs like a shallot
Unlike typical onions that produce a single bulb during the growing season you will find that these tree onions will often split naturally to produce 2 or more bulbs from the base so you can eat some and plant the rest to maintain your stock
Disease Resistant and Winter hardy
You will find that these onions are more resistant to pests and diseases. They have survived and thrived for at least 160 years. They will readily survive the British Winter but it's best to hedge your bets and protect them from damp, waterlogged soil and mulch to protect from surface frosts. Other than that, they aren't very demanding.
Heritage Onion - An Historic Talking Point - Catawissa Pennysylvania
Tree onions are a very rare hybrid; produced when 2 different onion species cross pollinated centuries ago. This particular strain is attributed to a well connected seedsman, F.F. Merceron, trading from Catawissa, Pennsylvania. His topsetting onions were very popular in the seed catalogues of the 1850's and survived on many homesteads and cottage gardens. They aren't readily harvested by mechanised processes like the everyday onions you see in the shops and were almost forgotten. They were rediscovered during the 1970's when a field of onions were found on an old homestead. Some of the offspring of these rare onions were imported from the States and have been growing here in the UK ever since.
Interesting for Children
My grandaughter loves picking a blade leaf and eating it straight from the garden. She seems to enjoy the sweet peppery taste, preferring them to other onions we grow. It's also easy for her to handle the young bulbils to plant up her own pots and watch them grow
