When we stopped by for a quick visit with our friend Aris (owner of Aris Mixon & Co. in Cherry Valley, New York) he had to show us his “running onions.”  I had seen them growing at the Black Cat Café in Sharon Springs (New York) a few years ago where Tony, the proprietor, called them Egyptian Walking Onions.  I’ve since heard them called tree onions.  I assume that they are edible, but Aris, the ultimate flower arranger, uses them in interesting floral combinations for indoor arrangements.  Steve just like taking photos of them.  I’m sure you can find lots of information about them online, ‘cause this is about all I know about them.
