"Everything Grows Bigger in Canada" - Chinese Super Green Onions Show Great Promise in Ontario
The Chinese super green onion (CGO) has been, and is, a very popular vegetable not only in Chinese communities, but globally as well. World onion production is the second most significant horticultural crop production in the world after tomatoes. The CCAgr conducted a market research study of CGO with investment from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) delivered by the Agricultural Adaption Council. The purpose of this study was to discover a link between Chinese super green onion production and Canadian consumer habits and demand. Through the analysis of this study, the CCAgr identified a prevalent market in Canada for Chinese super green onions and proved that growth of these onions in Ontario and in other provinces would be ideal. The CCAgr trialed the growth of these onions in various soil compositions in areas of Flamborough and Hamilton, Ontario. The Chinese super green onions proved to be frost and pest tolerate as well as very adaptable to most types of soil.

Samples of the onions were on display at our booth at this year’s Outdoor Farm Show. Many local farmers were taken back by their size and mentioned how “everything grows bigger in Canada!” There was much interest from farmers and companies in regards to producing this crop in Canada. Our center currently has some CGO seeds available for sale. If you are interested in purchasing, please contact our office.
