What part of an onion plant can be eaten?
This was our first year growing purple onions. They have matured and we have began to pull them up. Every website I find says to clip off the top of the plant (leaves/stalk) but I feel like we are wasting a lot. Can the tops be eaten or used for something?
In early onions one can cut off the tops and those are green onions. As they more mature the stalk gets tougher and the taste may change but I do believe you can still eat it if you want to. It's not poisonous or anything
Plant in the fall. Add a fresh layer of compost as garlic starts growing quickly in the spring. Garlic is ready for harvest by midsummer. Gentle harvesting will extend the garlic's longevity. read more
