Forms a fairly long white stem with firm and tubular onion leaves. A surprisingly fine flavour that goes well with exotic dishes. Best sown in a greenhouse or in the garden in seedbeds up to mid May. Sow thinly, cover the seeds well, and when the plants are a pencil's thickness, transplant to a plant hole 18 cm deep. Allow the plant and roots to reach the bottom, and water a little. The plant hole fills as the plant grows.
