Wild Onion

Wild onion (a.k.a. onion grass – Allium Canadense) can be found growing along roadsides and fields all across North America where they grow during different seasons to adapt to local conditions. Every part is edible!

They produce small underground bulbs up to ¾ inch, and a collection of “top set” bulbs at the end of spring before going dormant.  

Our seed packet contains these top-set bulbs that grew on the end of flower stalks of onions found growing in Gainesville, Florida.  You can use either the underground bulb or the smaller top set bulbs like a regular onion, only you may not need to chop them.  The leaves that grow through the winter can be used like scallions. 

You can plant these sets any time from now till fall, and they will come up when they are ready.  They thrive in waste areas that are mowed at least once a year during the summer to keep back competition, but might grow a bit larger if you add organic matter, fertilize, and irrigate.  

Stop irrigating toward the end of spring and let the plants dry up as they go dormant.
