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.

These are my F2 plants in which one is producing a scape much earlier than the others, not sure its a good thing as i may not have other plants to cross pollinate it with, i see how it goes but my aim is to get F3 seed from my 10 F2 plants
