Spring Onion – Ischikrona (Organic)

£2.55

A vigorous Japanese type bunching onion producing stems up to an inch in diameter. Ishikrona is definitely one of our favourites. It is beautiful in every way with fresh green coloured leaves and a bright white stem. It is succulent, mild and sweet in flavour, fresh and crispy in texture. It is extremely hardy as well as pest resistant and it stands in the ground for a long time without bulbing up.

As an important ingredient of the Asian cuisine, it can be used in stir-fries, soups and salads. It can be used instead of or alongside onions.

Spring onion tips: Sow salad onions in drills as close as 10cm apart in well prepared, weed-free soil. Seeds can be 2-3cm apart in the row with no need to thin. For a very early crop, seeds can be started indoors in January.
Salad onions can be sown throughout the growing season. For a continuous supply of pencil-thick onions we recommend sowing every two weeks. They are ready for harvest six weeks after sowing.
