  • The main onion is a little tough unless you really cook it and bulbs are slightly garlicky, but pickel well. The fastest way to get it propagating is remove bulbs from stem and replant.I had mine in the ground all winter. They weather very well. If I can remember, I will try to bring some bulbs Friday. My oldtimerz picks on me alot.

  • Will the parent overwinter a second year or is it done?

    Will the new bulb be good to eat until it start to set the plants or are the new bulbs the best edible part?

  • Parent is very hardy. Seems to live as long as it is in ground and occasionally get water. Even the green shoots are edible. But best time to eat parent onion (for tenderness) is before it creates it's trunk for the sprouts.
