Apache scallion seeds grow just like all the other scallions, but has a bright purple base end that colours up early in the season. If left to mature, it will form a vivid pink bulb or salad onion. Its mild flavour and crisp texture make Apache a great candidate for adding colour and contrast to salads and sandwiches. Provide the frost protection of a cloche row cover, and Apache will grow slowly all winter long. Sow at three week intervals from March to the end of July for a continuous harvest. The quirky little onions are perfect for the market table. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Transplants are preferred for home gardeners. Sow 3 seeds 5mm-1cm (¼-½”) deep in each cell of a 72-cell tray. Transplant as a clump, spacing each 15cm (6″) apart in rows 45-75cm (18-30″) apart. Scallions can be spaced at 2-5cm (1-2″) apart in rows 15cm (6″) apart.
