Many spring onion varieties have been launched since White Lisbon made its debut in 1787, but this heirloom variety is still the most popular among gardeners. It is an incredibly hardy and tough variety, producing a quick and easy crop. Seeds can be sown virtually all year round to provide long, slender white stems with green tops throughout the year. The crisp, succulent shoots have a moreish, mild flavour. The main sowing time is from March to September to harvest from April to October.
This variety, together with all the other varieties in our RHS AGM Veg Seed Collection, have been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Such plants have been awarded this accolade after testing and assessment by the society, and is only given to plants that have proved to have excellent garden performance and worth growing.
