Evergreen Bunching Onion

Allium cepa
Evergreen White Bunching Nebuka Onions (65-120 days)

  • Also called Nebuka onions.
  • Fantastic for green onions.  Evergreen White produces clusters of 5-9 long, tall, crisp, silvery white stalks.
  • Amazing flavor for a non-bulbing onion that is slow to go to seed.  Good for spring or fall planting.

TIP:  Plant them first in planting trays (redwood box, old cat box, whatever) and then transplant them to the garden when they are about 1/2 the size of a pencil.  In this way you can eliminate weed competition that always happens when you plant such a tiny seed.  It also makes them very easy to use as a border planting.  Many pest do not like onions and may not cross the border.  So not only do you save space, but you create natural barriers.  Note:  When companion planting, do not plant onions next to beans or legumes of any type.

Planting Tips:

Day length sensitive – check for which is best in your area.  Needs a light friable soil to grow successfully.  Start in early spring, scatter seeds in tray ¼”- ½” apart in moist soil and put in warm place.  Transplant out 8-10 weeks later in final spacing.  Thinned onions are great in salads!

Seeding Rate:

500,000 plants/acre, aproximately 6 lb.

Seeding Care:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture – not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
