Flagpole (Scallion)


Flagpole (Scallion) | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada
Allium fistulosum | Biennial | Heirloom

Flagpole scallion can reach up to 2’ and ½” in thickness. Crisp, blue-green foliage is tender and juicy, and the elongated white bulbs slice up beautifully for salads, stir-fries, and baked potatoes.
Planting tip: Direct sow outside or sow inside 6 weeks before planting outside. Sow seed in cluster when starting indoors. Pinch the top off when seedling is 4 inches tall. Trim seedling to 1” when it reaches 5” to increase thickness.

Harvesting tip: Scallions are typically ready to enjoy 8 to 12 weeks after sowing. Harvest the largest plants first so that those left can continue to grow. This way you can extend and maximize your harvest.

Storage tip: Store your scallions in the refrigerator or slice them up to pack into freezer bags or containers to add to recipes whenever you need a boost of fresh flavor.
