Onion Bunching/Scallion White Lisbon Organic Seeds

Allium cepa

Item #3152

60 days. White Lisbon is a scallion, also called a green or spring onion and sometimes referred to as a bunching onion. 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.

This packet sows one 8-foot row.

Days to Emerge:
10-15 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"

Seed Spacing:
1/2"

Row Spacing:
8 - 12"

Thinning:
Not necessary unless thicker whites are desired.


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as soil can be worked, and every 2 to 4 weeks recommended for continuous production. In mild climates, can be sown in fall for spring harvest.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Scallions can be harvested any time during the growing season. Dig up with a hand trowel or garden fork. If left in the ground to mature (about 100 days) White Lisbon forms a small bulb which will have a more pungent flavor than its earlier scallion form.
