As the name is implies Tokyo is a Japanese heirloom. Tokyo has in an abundant bunching onion that looks just like what you would get from the farmer's market. I remember my mother and her mom relishing these onions out of the neighbors garden. They seemed to always be on the dinner table. Tokyo is only mildly pungent and very uniform in growth.
Tokyo Long White Bunching is excellent for farmers market or keeping a supply out in the garden for fresh eating. Use the tops on spuds or saute them with olive oil in your favorite dish. We use them in omelets with some smoked bacon. Tokyo is resistant to Pink Root Rot & Smut
Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region. OR
Remember Tokyo is an excellent bunching onion three seasons out of the year, but it does not over-winter well.
I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.
