Is a type of onion native to the Chinese province of Shanxi, that's now grown and become popular around the world. An easy to grow herb with a mild garlic flavour that's not as pungent or strong as a garlic clove. The flower buds and leaves are often included in Thai stir-fries and the pretty white flowers can be added to salads. Perfect for pots and containers. They're delicious with scrambled eggs or on baked potatoes with sour cream.
Contains average 250 seeds.
