Allium fistulosum

After testing several strains over a few years, I three years ago got one that DOES multiply and IS perennial here in south Tampa. Now that spring is here their growth is rapid in a few large Water Wise Container Gardens (including a 6 foot diameter kiddy pool that Tim gave me) plus in the one gallon pots I am selling them in. Below is a good overview that also addresses the various strains with differing climate needs. I literally can't cook without onions and hope that this particular strain at last lets me reach my goal of onions self sufficiency vs. buying 2-3 three pound bags of yellow onions each month.
