yep, Fedco variety = "Evergreen Hardy White"
I haven't totally figured out winter scallions yet. The greens seem to get
bruised somewhere below 25 degrees, but the white part seems OK for colder
than that... I'm thinking the best thing is to either overwinter the
scallions and let them perk up and put out new greens when it warms up in
the spring before harvesting them; or, better, grow them in our hoophouse
(i.e., greenhouse with the heat turned off) so that the greens will be in
For planting time... here (zone 6b, ~10/15 for first fall frost) I'm
guessing ~9/1 for outside, ~9/15-10/1 for in hoophouse.
