Batun onion. We grow in the garden

If you are an amateur green young onions, then the batun onion will take its rightful place in your garden, and the high content in its young leaves vitamins (C - 2 times more than leek, A, B1, PP, B2), salts of magnesium, iron, potassium will bring great benefits to the body.
As for the cultivation of this crop - nothing special, nothing complicated, since the plant is quite unpretentious and tolerates low temperatures well (up to 8 degrees below zero).

In the first year batun will delight you with a large number of tender and juicy feathers (which grow especially tasty on well-fertilized, light soils with sufficient watering), and on second year you can already collect seeds (and happily share them with your neighbors). They are, by the way, a little smaller than that of a regular bow, so they easily crumble.
