Ishikura is a classic Japanese winter-hardy bunching onion, with long white stalks and sturdy upright dark green leaves. Lovely diced as a garnish or left whole and roasted, a useful allium for the kitchen garden.
In Japan this traditional Japanese type bunching onion is a very popular cultivated vegetable and an important ingredient in Asian cuisine. It is used in stir-fry’s, miso soup and in takoyaki dumpling dish, among others.
It has a mild, sweet flavour and is strongly reminiscent to the scallion or welsh onion, once grown it is similar to the leek in appearance.

The flowers are attractive to bees, while the whole plant is an effective insect repellent.
