Deep burgundy scallion with red to purple accents. Can be found growing wild on Jicarilla Apache country, near the Colorado border in north central New Mexico.
Apache scallions color up well early in the season, creating a most attractive and tasty treat. Fast growing, low input bunching onion that’s easy to grow, spicy yet mild with that hint of sweetness expected from a red variety.
Keeps well in the garden, and will eventually mature into a slightly oval pearl onion of small size, perfect for mincing, useful in soups, on salads, and for tacos or enchiladas.
