Today I received the onions I ordered from Ebay. 
I was so surprised with the addition of a gift. This kitty picture hand colored was wrapped around a seed head labeled 
Bonus: garlic seeds

 They are called

They are also commonly called top onions, top setting onions, walking onions, or Egyptian onions(Allium cepa var. proliferum). Tree onion bulblets will sprout and grow while still on the original stalk, which may bend down under the weight of the new growth and take root some distance from the parent plant, giving rise to the name walking onion. It has been postulated that the name Egyptian onion is derived from tree onions being brought to Europe from the Indian subcontinent.

These onions make a nice PERENNIAL garden. They are harvested young as green onions or left to mature into bulb-lets. As the bulblets form at the top of the green onion-like foliage, they weigh down the stem pulling it to the ground where they can grow new plants.  They will continue to do this, literally walking across your garden, thus it got the name WALKING ONION.

Sets can be planted ANY TIME OF THE YEAR, OTHER THAN WINTER. As soon as weather cools a bit in the falll, plant the bulbs just below the soil  and water it as needed. Space them 3 to 5 inches apart. Next spring, you may harvest green onions or leave them to produce top sets in late summer. Harvest sets after the skins begin to dry. 

Every part of the plant is edible.
Green leaves used in salad and with many dishes, much better than the normal onion. Gives a very pleasant taste, color and smell.
Onions from the top are edible. Very good natural medicine for common cold when eaten fresh and raw. Can be added with salad and other dishes
Onions from the bottom of the plant is also edible.

The bulb-lets should produce flowering tops in their first year if planted in the fall, but we cannot guarantee this as conditions vary from our garden to yours. We will happily replace any onions that do not send up a green onion, but cannot replace those that come up but do not produce a flower. They will produce a flowering top the following year if left in the ground.
