Green Onion Battle, Rd 2: Tokyo Long White vs Ishikura Long Winter
Round 2: Mounding the ‘Tokyo Long White’ and ‘Ishikura Long Winter’ green onion plants.
Green onions / spring onions / scallions / bunching onions are either in delicious dishes or make dishes delicious. The two varieties mentioned will be grown in a side by side contest to observe how they grow.
My favorite scallions have been the Japanese heirloom varieties. Very easy to grow and can be grown year round in the southern California – Los Angeles area. Though an inexpensive produce it is the convenience of walking to the garden to find some that makes this plant worth it to grow. Moreover, fresh harvested scallion has more spring in its texture and is more aromatic.
