Multiplier Onions

Q: Where can I find old-fashioned multiplying onions? All the local seed and feed stores have shallots.

A: I doubt you’ll find them locally. Multiplier onions are also called potato onions. As their name suggests, the bulbs multiply, forming offsets each season. Once you have a multiplier onion, you never have to buy another. Try the Georgia Market Bulletin (BROKEN) or Ronninger Potato Farm.
