DIRECT SOW BUNCHING ONIONS WHEN SOIL TEMPS ARE ABOVE 60°F
8-10 WEEKS BEFORE LAST FROST
Bunching Nebuka seeds do well in an 'average' soil when planted in full sun after the danger of last frost in early spring.
In areas that do not typically get frost, sow seeds in the fall.
The Evergreen White Nebuka is a popular Japanese variety of bunching onions. Used fresh or cooked in a variety of grilled dishes or Asian stir fry.
These onions can be harvested at any time. We recommend selective harvesting to keep a continuous crop.
Like Chives, bunching onions will produce a flower if allowed to fully mature. This flower contains the seeds.
Allow the flower to dry out on the stalk, cut the stalk a few inches down and hang upside down in a paper sack to dry thoroughly for a few weeks in a cool dry place.
Shake the bag to release the seeds. Separate the seeds from the chaff and safely store until next growing season.
