Sometimes called Egyption multipliers. Planted in the fall they produce early in the spring and are delicious. Allow some of the plants to mature and they will produe bulbs at the end of the stalk. The bulbs will fall over when mature. Harvest them in July and and allow them to dry. Now you can separate the bulbs and plant them in the fall agsin. You will never have to buy another onion bulb. Write if you want to know how to plant them.

I call them ornamental onions. Have them in the flower beds, looks beautiful for background and helps keeps pests/bugs away. I got starters from my neighbor. I pop the tops off and toss into areas on my yard that could use a filler, and they come.
