Yesterday I divided an "Eliska's Bunching Onion" for a visiting friend, broke two tops off accidentally, roots still in the ground...just ate one with my supper....MUCH milder and sweeter than my strain of Allium fistulosum. That, the very different manner in which it divides at the base, and the much smaller bloom size, now confirms my hunch that it IS different. The flavor was like a very mild sweet A. fistulosum is more in-your-face onion. She got the original a few years ago as loose onion sets, unnamed, in a box at a Tru-Value store. Truly perennial, a true multiplier AND makes copious seeds!
