Evergreen Hardy Scallion

Nature & Nurture Seeds

Allium fistulosum 'Evergreen Hardy'


Pkt(≈100 seeds)

65 days. Super easy-to-grow scallions that are winter hardy. Harvest full plants as bunching onions or cut the leaves to harvest as green onions. Harvested anytime April through November, it is perfect filler for CSA boxes during lean weeks or for gardeners who want hassle-free onions all season long. Grown as an annual or allowed to become a perennial patch - simply divide each perennial clump during harvest and replant. Japanese heirloom hardy to -30⁰. Plants are resistant to Pink Root and Smut diseases.

Versatile in the kitchen. White parts are used like bulb onions but are milder while green tops are used like chives. We love them cooked in stir fries, soups, and baked dishes. Grill whole or are great raw in miso soup, chicken salad, dressings or as a garnish. Preserve by freezing.

Sow seeds directly (outside) anytime 5/1-9/1, ¼” deep, 1-2” apart in rows spaced 12-18” apart. Slow to germinate, especially in cooler temperatures. Plants will over-winter and will divide to grow in clusters when plants start growing again in Spring. Clumps can be divided in second year or harvested. Be sure to keep patch well weeded, as scallions are not strong competitors.
