Is this an onion?
I just dug this plant up from my folks' yard earlier today out of curiosity and planted it.
The bulb itself has brown papery stuff surrounding it. I didn't bother to peel the papery stuff back to see what color the actual bulb is. It almost appears as if it's offsetting already, as I've counted two small bulbs forming from the base of the Mama bulb.
I was unable to pot it as deep as it was in the ground, so there is white showing that was originally under the ground.
I'd like to know, is this an onion? My Father thinks it's an onion, but I've never seen an onion this large before. From tip to tip (leaf to leaf), it's over two feet wide.
If this isn't an onion, do you know what this is? I realize if this isn't an onion, I may need to re-post on the Bulb forum.
Thanks so much,
