Description

White Lisbon Bunching Onion (Allium cepa) - also known as Green Onions, Spring Onions or Scallions. The White Lisbon is an old favourite and ever popular spring onion. It is a hardy and reliable variety with long white stems and bright green tops. It is quick and easy to grow, cropping in 60 days. They are perfect for container growing and can be tucked into mixed containers or beds.

A popular variety for decades because it produces dependably in widely varying conditions. It thrives in a wide range of soils, is heat and cold tolerant, and can be sown successively throughout the season. For the finest quality, pencil-thin onions, sow seed densely and do not thin seedlings.

 

White Lisbon are the go-to spring onions for a decent salad, with silvery skin and crisp, succulent stems that have a mild onion flavour with that characteristic 'bite'. Delicious when young, they take on a more pungent flavour as the bulbs swell.

 

The spring onion is believed to have originated in the Far East. Chives and spring onion are recorded in Chinese history from 2000 BC. They were grown in Ancient Egypt, and eventually arrived in Rome and became known as the word onion from the Latin word Unio, which means 'large pearl'. In Middle English, it became 'unyon' and as time passed the word developed into onion.
