Allium cepa. A standard green onion for summer and fall production, Kincho scallion seeds are Japanese type scallions with dark-green leaves and tall, straight, single-stalk stems that do not bulb. Increase the white stem length by planting in trenches and hilling up. Kincho maintains a uniform thickness along its whole length, and they look great bunched on the market table. The flavour is bright, and the texture is crisp, so it's just right for slicing. Kincho is a good choice for winter gardening - provide a cloche cover over the row, and it will grow all winter.
