Spring / Bunching Onion Tokyo Long White
Bunching Onion Tokyo Long White has long, slender roots that are harvested as large spring onions. Reaching about 30cm to 40cm tall if grown in singles, a bit less when grown in bunches of 4 or 5.
The stalk bottoms are pure white, while the pungent, flavourful tops are medium green. Use fresh or cook in stir fries, soups, salads and many other types of dishes.
Sow – August to April (cool climate). Sow 10 seeds per hole, can thin to 5.
Spacing – 5cm between bunches, 20cm rows.
Because the wild onion is extinct and ancient records of using onions span western and eastern Asia, the geographic origin of the onion is uncertain, although domestication likely took place in Southwest or Central Asia. Onions have been variously described as having originated in Iran, western Pakistan and Central Asia.
Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 16 to 24 C (around 10-14 days to germination)
