We grow Egyptian Onions to yield the finest spring onions.
Most of the plants we grow start to come into harvest not before July. Many we don't see until August or later.
Egyptian Onions are a kind of perennial onions - yep - they're here forever.
And they're hardy. They set little bulbs on top in August,
these can be planted then, and they will grow into the autumn, go
through the winter unscathed even if unprotected and grow so early that
they are ready to pull and take to the kitchen in April. Sound
remarkable? They are - and in tests of yield they have led all
other government crops in terms of productivity.
When they are pulled in April to be used, their whole stalk
including the white bulb and the green stalk can be chopped. It
shouldn't be cooked long, if cooked, and can also be used raw, its
great on salad.
Paradise says: "I always knew fresh food was the best. I'm
just glad with decades of experience I'm getting better at it."
