Comparing shallots, walking onions and multiplying onions

14 years ago

I am aware of the "Allium" forum. It's been quiet-as-a-tomb over there.

We plant our onions, leeks and shallot sets in the middle of December.

How many bulbs of shallots should I harvest from each bulb planted?

How many bulbs of walking onions should I expect to harvest from the base of each walking onion planted?

Evergreen Bunching onions?

When will the bubils appear on the walking onions? Will I only have clusters of bubils on the scape of the original bulb planted? Or, will it take the "multiplied bulbs" another year to start setting bubils?
