Variety Cultivation Description Kobold Chive (Allium schoenoprasum, Alliaceae) Chinese Chive Fresh cut Processing Pot plant NFT Jeilo F1 Perennial, height 30 cm Tsw: 1-1,5 g | Seed count per 10 g = 6.500-10.000 seeds. Sowing: Direct outdoors in March for cropping in summer, or sow in August for cropping in April in the following year. For forcing chives sow in February under glass. Seed amount: Direct 120-150 g/100 m², for seedlings 20-30 g/1.000 plants (20-30 seeds per press-pot), for pot growing 40 g/1.000 plants. Cultivation: For direct sowing and planting, space rows 30-40 cm apart. For forcing, plant the propagated plants 30x25 cm apart in April. Interruptions in growing or cropping may disturb the root development, putting the success of the winter-forcing crop at risk. The roots are harvested, cleaned and stored in autumn when the nutrients have been transferred to the roots and the leaves have died. Before forcing, the winter dormancy must be broken, either by drying at 35°C for 10-12 days or by a warm water bath treatment at 42°C directly before forcing. For early forcing in autumn a one week cold storage at 2°C increases the rate of success. During forcing (temperature 18-20°C) the roots are either packed in boxes and cut for bundles after about 14 days, or the roots are packed in 9-10 cm plastic pots, and after 14 days forcing sold in the pot. Harvesting: In the second year 3-4 cuts are possible. Use: Fresh leaves for salads, egg dishes, soups, fish, sausage and in potato salads. Kobold x x Enza Zaden selection of Chinese chive.
