Description

Organic Onion: Scallions. White Lisbon. Allium cepa.

A traditional and familiar salad onion. Fast growing and great tasting. White Lisbon develops a medium-long, white shaft and forms a small bulb. The leaves are light green and stand nicely upright. Sow the scallions close to each other if you wish them to stay fine.

How to grow:
Sow seeds thinly direct into well prepared soil from February to August. Sow successionally for continuous cropping in drills 1cm deep and 25cms apart. Harvest when the bulbs are 2-3 cm in diameter.

Problem solving:
The short growing time makes them easy to grow. Protect young seedlings from slugs and sow in the Allium part of your rotation. If you sow them beside your row of carrots, the onions and carrots protect each other from pests.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Sauteed with kale, olive oil and salt. The mild taste makes them perfect for salads and sandwiches. Lovely in stir frys or sauteed whole as crudites.

Cultural history:
Thought to originate from the far east of Europe, scallions take their name from the ancient Canaan city of Ashkelon.

Approximately 300 seeds per gram.
