Egyptian walking tree onions

Egyptian walking tree onions

Details  These are hardy perennial onions that are very prolific, they do best in a well-drained, moist garden bed, bulbils are best planted from March till Sep.
Breeding work on the onion is currently being done, the Egyptian Walking tree onion is a F1 clone which is a cross between the Walsh and a standard brown onion, through bulbil removal and hand pollination 13 seeds were produced in 2015, from those 13 only 5 seedlings germinated, one of those later died. During that summer the four remaining plants grew and divided given me 23 new base onions, these were then replanted out separately and its hoped they will produce more seed. The goal is to develop a open pollinate walking onion that is grown from seed and not bulbils

Leek - Perennial Leek - 93RW38

Details  Forms large clumps of thumb size stems which have a stronger leek flavour than standard leek though they are a bit more finicky when harvesting.
Best sown in spring forming clumps by late summer/autumn, if left in the ground through the following winter the clumps will form a mass of corns meaning the perennial leek will become permanent and difficult to eradicate. Some gardeners may prefer its perpetual feature while others prefer it as a annual vegetable by insuring its harvested before winter.

Onion - Pukekohe long keeper - 36RW50

Onion - Pukekohe long keeper - 36RW50

Details  An old strain of long storing brown skin onion that can grow up to 800grams.

Selection work involves sowing seed early spring so as to give the onion the longest possible growing season, this way the idea is to expose any onions that have a undesirable tendency to bolt to seed in its first year, its the second year that the onion is used seed production. After the first years growth, only onion that have excellent size and shape are stored for winter, springtime the first 50% that start to grow green shoots while still in storage are discarded and the remain 50% slow bolters planted back out from seed production. The slower the bolters the better the keeping ability.
