The Allium genus includes several different species of onions cultivated for food, including the Japanese bunching onion (A. fistulosum), the Egyptian onion (A. proliferum), and the Canada onion (A. canadense). The bulb or common onion, Allium cepa, is the most widely cultivated species of this genus. Several Allium species are considered “wild onions”, but A. cepa is exclusively cultivated and its wild (original) form is unknown. Although the onion is most frequently a biennial or a perennial plant, it is usually treated as an annual crop and harvested in its first growing season.
Agriance offers both short- and medium-day onion varieties, the majority of which are suitable for cultivation in hot climates. We offer brown / yellow and red varieties.
