Onions: Perennial Types?

Posted by butterflylion 7bGA (My Page) on

I'd like to hear about any onions you grow that act as perennials. Bunching types are one I'm interested in. Also, potato onions. While potato onions are usually planted in fall I read that they can be planted this time of the year. Does anyone have a few they can share? Thanks!

RE: Onions: Perennial Types?

If my onions do as well as I'm hoping, I should have some to share later on this summer. I got them at the Old-Timey seed swap in Oglethorpe County last year and so far, so good. They've done really well through the fall and winter, but I'm waiting to see whether they will multiply as dramatically as the farmer who was giving them away said they would. Mine have so far only tripled or quadrupled in the 6 or more months I've had them, although they are also larger now than they were when I got them.

Of course, I've also EATEN a few. Mostly just the stalks, though, because I've been trying to leave them alone to see what would happen.
