I am looking to find a source for Allium chinense or rakkyo. Any information would be helpful on where I can obtain this plant. Apparently it does not form seeds.

Sorry to revive an old, old thread. But can one of you allium experts tell me if this is rakkyo? I got them from a Korean market today, and he said these are special chives that are very strong and used in kimchi.
