These elongated onions grow together in groups, or bunches. This is also how they are packaged and sold. We also harvest spring onions in loose kg's all year round, especially for the cutting plants. The spring onion has several names, so you may know it as scallion, green onion or welsh onion. The spring onion comes up in the spring, has a long stem and is very tasty in a salad.

Cultivation calendar spring onion
Preparations for the Dutch cultivation of spring onion start at the end of April. After 6 to 8 weeks, the first Dutch spring onions can be harvested. In the Netherlands we harvest mechanically, which is in contrast to other production areas in Europe where only manual harvesting takes place.
In Morocco we grow our spring onions in the south of the country. Here, we work with one main variety, but also test several other varieties.
During the winter months, we supplement the spring onion from Morocco with spring onions grown in Senegal.
In Egypt, we have a regular supplier that we cooperate with.
In Germany, we have a regular supplier that we cooperate with.
