I grew them a good number of years ago . . . and, got more last year
I need to say right off that I'm not a fan of the green, walking onion. They show up real early and that is a big plus. However, they are hot!
The chives show up real early, too. And, I'm not about to pass by the chives during the best days of their season and go for the walking onions instead.
And, they are messy
. They sprawl . . . so, why did I plant them again?? Well, I can't remember the taste of the bulblets! Or, even if I ever tried eating those little topset bulbs. So, what choice do I have?
As Hit or Miss says, they are showing up right now! Before they sprawl all over the place - I'll harvest those little bulbs and give 'em a try! Maybe they will be like early shallot bulbs! Maybe they will be like garlic scapes but with a flavor only known to Egyptians or exotic gardening folk!
It won't be long now . . . did I ever eat those things before?!?
Maybe they will be some kind of cure for senility !
