We have grown this for many years together with other chives, but we pinch off all the flowers from all varieties other than the one we harvest from seed each year.

The cultivar originally originated from Swedish Rallar who brought it with them and cultivated it in connection with their unimaginably hard work building the railway network in Norway. The cultivar, which can probably be considered a land variety or primitive cultivar, and came to us from Halldis Myhre Tvete in Ringebu around 2015.


Allium fistulosum L.


Chives are a perennial, hardy plant usually with a straight shape and little or no round bulb at the base. There are essentially two main types, unbranched and with, and in English the terms “welch onion” (which has nothing to do with Wales) and “japanese bunching onion” sometimes correspond to these, but the use of the term is not consistent. It divides during the season and is therefore easy to reproduce vegetatively by dividing and spreading in a new field. It is also easy to propagate from seed. There are many cultivars, perhaps especially in Asia where it originally comes from and is used on a large scale. In Gudbrandsdalen there is a tradition of growing them on south-facing turf roofs.
