The Welsh onion (Allium fistulosum L.) of the 'Entita' variety is a perennial vegetable plant that is grown for its thick aromatic leaves. It grows quickly and spreads broadly by developing the so called bunches. The 'Entita F1' is a single stem medium early cultivar. It produces dense, dark green tubular leaves. It is also resistant to vernalisation - it does not shoot flowering stalks prematurely - and does not develop bulbs. It is perfectly suited for harvesting selected leaves and for harvesting in bundles. Its vegetation period lasts 70 days in spring and about 55 days in summer. Welsh onion is a valued vegetable, whose milder than onion taste allows you to use it in various dishes. It perfectly complements salads, cottage cheese, pasta and many other dishes.

The delicious Welsh onion stands out with high content of vitamin C, minerals and amino acids. The high concentration of flavonoids also belongs to important properties of this vegetable. These compounds have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

The 'Entita F1' bunching onion is a plant that requires sunny or partially shady sites. It prefers moderately moist and permeable soils. It copes with lesser soils, provided they are not too wet or water-logging. The optimal reaction for this relative of the common onion lies between pH 6.5 and 7.5. The plant is resistant to frost and winters in the ground very well. Its vegetation period starts very early, as the young leaves are not bothered by frost. It also tolerates periodical water shortages, but you should not let the plant dry, as this might impair the taste of Welsh onion foliage.

You can sow directly from April to July, but spring is considered the ideal time for this activity. Keep the rows 30 centimetres and the plants 4 to 7 centimetres apart. The germination takes about two weeks. Please make sure to provide the plants with more space at the later development stages. You can also grow Welsh onion from seedlings grown on a hotbed or in a heated room.

Where do our seeds come from?

Exclusion of the middlemen from the whole process not only makes it possible for us to avoid sending out-of-date seeds that might have been lying too long on a warehouse shelf, but also ensures the most attractive price for top quality products.

The quality control process

All our seeds must pass a four-stage quality control process.

Stage one begins with a careful selection of the suppliers. Than we proceed with controlling their crops, foreign producers are not excluded from the quality control process. Plants are checked at every stage of their development: when they start to grow, during blooming and when they start bearing fruit (seeds). At this stage the most important thing is to ensure proper spacing of the plants. Thanks to that obtaining the desired morphological characteristics of each particular species or variety, such as colour, height and shape, can be ensured.

Stage two consists of a detailed verification tests in laboratory conditions. With the use of the highest quality equipment by the highly qualified staff, our suppliers perform more than 30 000 quality checks annually. The seeds that do not meet our requirements are subject to technological refining processes, including drying, cleaning, upgrading and testing again.

Stage three starts with sowing seeds in selected control plots. That way we obtain valuable, exact information concerning their germination that must be maintained at an appropriate level. Simultaneously, the varietal identity of each species is checked at this stage.

Stage four takes place in our warehouses and consists of eliminating seeds that have been stored for too long on our shelves and replacing them with new batches. Each package is stamped with a unique batch number and also with the sow-by-date.

All four stages combined allow us to state with confidence that the seeds we deliver comply with the highest standards and have completed all required control stages with flying colours.
