Allium fistulosum L. ( Welsh Onion , Japanese Bunching Onion , Spring Onion , scallion ), is a member of the onion family, Alliaceae . The names are ambiguous, as some may also be used to refer to any young green onion stalk, whether grown from Welsh onions, traditional bulbing onions, or other members of the onion family.
The species is very similar in taste and odor to the related garden onion, Allium cepa , and hybrids between the two ( tree onions ) exist. The Welsh onion, however, does not develop bulbs , and possesses hollow leaves ("fistulosum" means "hollow") and scapes.
Stratification: none required. Germination: sow seed 1/4" deep, tamp the soil, mulch the seed bed.
