Thsi year I grew White Lisbon and Ishikura. The former are slow growing but tasty, the latter are fast growin but coarse and bland. Can anyone recommend other spring onions to try or is White Lisbon my best bet? I was disappointed by Ishikura, I expected much better.
Try the Italian spring onion Lilia. Good, strong flavour, red stems and if you leave them they will produce full size onions.
I'd suggest Lilia too. White Lisbon is a good old reliable.
Thanks all, will try Lilia.
hi i have tried both lisbon and ishikera and have had good results.
i have come across a great way of planting them in modules as in planting them in a bunch amazing and it works with great return
look up quick crop on you tube planting spring onions i will never plant any other way
