Cibol, Welsh onion, Japanese bunching onion, bunching onion are all different names of this perennial onion. Extremely cold-hardy and prolific, it deserves a spot in a permaculture garden. It requires very little attention but will give you entire satisfaction.
It produces non-bulbing green stalks, with a flavor between leek and common onion. It can be cultivated all season long and even late in fall. Originally from China, it was naturalized throughout Europe and North America. Early settlers grew this plant in their gardens. The variety we offer comes from Miracle Farm.

Quebec-native climbing plant. It belongs to the legume family (<i>Fabaceae</i>). Grows well on river banks and shores, but also in the garden. Its flowers have a strong perfume, reminiscent of glycine. It is sometimes referred to as 'glycine tubéreuse' (tuberous glycine). The bean part of some of its common names refers to the edible beans produced from its flowers, when climate allows. Its tubers, also edible, are interconnected by a liana-root giving it a rosary-like appearance.
The apios was widely eaten by First Nations. Nowadays, it is still common to see it growing where their settlements once were. Highly nutritional, it contains up to 18% proteins, 3x that of potatoes. It can be eaten boiled or fried. However, make sure to peel it thoroughly as the skin contains latex.
