These are our favorite perennial onions!
Also known as tree onions, these onions are truly amazing. The entire plant is edible and there are many ways to enjoy their onion-ey goodness. The greens can be cut and eaten throughout the season like a delicious green onion. They will send up a flower stalk with edible small onions on top (called bulbils), that are tasty. And the tubers can be thinned as your patch grows and the bulb eaten like a shallot. So little work and so much flavor!
Here are some of the reasons why we love Egyptian Walking Onions...
- These perennial onions are so yummy! Bulbs and bulbils have a shallot flavor great in many dishes. Greens have a scallion flavor.
2) LOW MAINTENANCE
- These are the easiest onions you'll ever grow! Except for harvesting and watering. these plants need little care. Every few years a thinning and light composting will refresh your patch.
- The little bulbils at the top of these onions will root when the stalks fall over in the fall, planting themselves and growing your patch, giving the impression that they are walking around your garden.
