Description: Welsh Bunching onions are like huge spring onions that just keep on growing and multiplying. They can be harvested all winter. We use the whole stem, the green part as well as the white part, and chop them up in all our cooking dishes instead of bulbing onions, as well as raw in salads. They have outstanding flavour. We dig them up and divide them once a year to keep them at their best.
