The one I have came to me as "Egyptian Onion" and has red skinned topsets. Sometimes it sets a second topset above the first one - in some cases these had flowers/seed pods instead of topsets. Others had pods among the topsets.

I was happy with how well these divided in spring - pretty much three full sized green onions for every topset I planted. That is at pretty high density. I should probably dig some now they have died down and space them out or at least see whether they have any goodly sized bulbs.
