      About the Plant:

      • These wildly popular and prolific multiplier onions resemble the wild onions harvested on I’itoi Mountain, also known as Baboquivari Mountain, by Tohono O'odham people. Botanical studies place the I’itoi onion among a very old line of clumping onions brought to the US by Jesuit missionaries in the late 17th century, concluding that the onion is not necessarily a US native. Today they are eagerly sought out by chefs for their mild shallot-like bulbs and slightly spicy greens. The peppery flavor pairs well with Southwestern cuisine.

      Love them

      I bought two starter pots, wish I would of gotten more. I transplanted them and they are already dividing. I tasted a few leaves and they are strong.

      I’toi onions thrive in the Old Pueblo!

      I love planting these onions, there’s so much happier than growing traditional green onions.
      Very adaptable and versatile!
      A culinary delight!
