Parade Organic scallion seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! For an open pollinated variety, Parade shows remarkable uniformity, with little or no bulbing. Dark green, almost waxy leaves grow vigorously with white stalks that can be made longer by hilling up soil around them. Expect upright growth with no branching. Parade looks great as a bunching onion on the market table, but it performs perfectly in the home garden. Provide frost protection with a cloche tunnel, and you can harvest this scallion all winter long. Parade is one of the best scallions to grow if you plan on saving seeds for next season. To do this, wait for some of your scallions to overwinter. Their flowers are formed after a cold period. Be aware that they can cross pollinate with other members of Allium fistulosum as well as A. cepa, so they need to be isolated if both are in bloom at the same time.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organic form of graphite. This helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.
Matures in 70 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
