Onion Bunching Shimonita Negi- Asian Vegetable
A single stalk variety, it is considered the ‘King of the Negi’ for its fat white root ends and its wonderful sweet flavor when cooked. Can be harvested after 6 months but needs 12 months to develop the thicker stems. Maturity Approx. 120-140 day after transplanting or 365 days.
Culture: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after danger of all frost and transplant seedlings in early summer or sow seeds in fall and transplant seedlings in spring in a sunny location. When seedlings are 12-14" tall, dig an 8" deep trough in an east/west direction and transplant mounding the soil around the seedlings. Mulch around the base of green stems (every 40-50 days) to increase white area on stems.
