WANTED: potato onion (aka multiplier onion)

Posted by plantslayer 8 (My Page) on

I want to try growing "potato onions" for scallions in the spring and later. These things are expensive from the seed catalog, and I only need maybe 6 bulbs or so, if that many.

I can trade heirloom tomato seeds (Black cherry, Kosovo, Malachite Box, Orange Minsk, Indian Stripe, perhaps others, just ask) and I also have a decent amount of seed for Asian brassicas (including mizuna and giant red mustard), plus Chinese swordleaf lettuce and a good snow pea variety from Taiwan. I have some pepper seed as well, bell and hot varieties, I sort of gave up on growing these after I was unable to have success with them in the past few years.

If there is something else you want to trade for, let me know, I might even have it!

RE: WANTED: potato onion (aka multiplier onion)

I can send you some multiplier onions (aka 'shallots', not scallions - scallions are the non-bulbing 'green' onions that look like chives). These are agricultural grade Dutch shallots. The cultivar name is 'Yellow Moon'. Send me an e-mail at I don't need anything in trade.
