As of 2017 (Heisei 29)SaitamaWelsh onions cultivated by the farmers below are traded, and although they are small in quantity, they are also cultivated in Adachi Ward.[3].


AlliumIs mainly distributed in the Northern Hemisphere and contains more than 500 species[4]..This genus includes old vegetables grown for thousands of years, such as onions, garlic, and leeks.[4]..The origin of green onions is said to be western China or Siberia[4][5]..The original species is(English edition)(Allium altaicum), Which is shorter than green onions and has smaller balls.[4][Annotation 1]..In China, about 2200 years ago,Tribute], Etc., and it is estimated that it was cultivated at that time.[4][5].

Welsh onions were introduced to Europe (end of the 16th century) and the United States (19th century), but they are not widely used and are often cultivated in the Orient (especially Japan).[4]..The time when I came to Japan is old,Japanese calligraphy"ofEmperor NikenIn September 6 (9), the name "Akigi" appeared.[4].. 『Kazuna Honzo(918), the Japanese names "ki" and "Wanasho(931) describes green onions, Japanese name "ki", and winter onions as "fuyugi", which shows that green onions have been cultivated for a long time.[4][5].

The origin of Senju green onions is Sunamura (currently Koto Ward) in the eastern part of Edo.Sunacho)[6][7]..As the originTenshoYear (1573-1593)[2],Osaka Castle Fallen CastleTime (1615)[1]There are various theories, but it is said that seeds were brought in from Osaka, and breeding and breeding were repeated and spread to Katsushika and Adachi.[6].

The original green onion is "Namba onion(Namba) "[7]..This green onion is a green onion that came from ChinaOsakaIt was established in Osaka, and from Osaka京都The seeds were carried to and improved according to the climate.Kujo green onionIt is said that it became.The seeds of Namba green onions are transported from Osaka to Sunamura and cultivated as "Sunamura green onions", and the seeds of Sunamura green onions cultivated near Senju are considered to be this species.Full-scale production of this species is said to be after the middle of the Meiji era, and during this period it came to be called "Senju green onion" after the name of the place of origin.[7][8].

Initially, it was a green onion that eats the blue part, but since the climate of Edo is colder than that of Osaka and it frosts wither, it now eats the white part, and further soil gathers to soften the petiole part. It became the form of deep-rooted green onions[6][9].

Senju green onions were shipped to the Senju green onions market, and their quality increased their fame.[10][Annotation 2]..The quality was maintained so that industry sources such as soba restaurants would say that it must be Senju green onions.[10][11].

Second World WarDuring this period, Senju green onions entered a period of suffering along with other vegetables.[5]..Cultivation had to be gradually reduced, and it was barely possible to maintain the variety.[5]..The recovery after the end of the war was quick, but this is for green onions.CrossIt is considered that the preservation of seeds by self-seeding was successful in addition to the low sex.[5].

Welsh onions have a long cultivation period, and it is difficult to cultivate them unless they are farmers who have a large agricultural land.FarmlandFarmers with smaller areas had to give up cultivation[10]..Therefore, the production area of ​​Senju green onions isKatsushikaShinjukuI moved to a place where a large agricultural land remains, such as Saitama Prefecture[10][12]..The Senju Vegetable Market also moved to the Adachi Market in 1945 (Showa 20), and the Fruit and Vegetable Department moved to the Kita Adachi Market in September 1979 (Showa 54).[11]..However, the Senju Welsh Onion Trading Association remains in Senjukawaracho, the birthplace of the Senju Green Onion Market, and continues to sell green onions at the Senjuyama Kashiwa Fruit and Vegetable Market, protecting the Senju Welsh Onion brand.[11].

In 2011 (Heisei 23), JA Tokyo Chuokai registered the trademark "Edo Tokyo Vegetables" and certified 34 kinds of vegetables including Senju green onions (Senju Ippon Negi).[15][16].

Katsushika HokusaibyThirty-six views of FutakiThere is also a theory that what is in the basket on the back of the horse of No. 14 "Musashi Senju" is "green onion".[17][18].

Variety and brand

Welsh onion is not very variable as an old vegetable, so the number of varieties is not so large.[4]..It is estimated that by the time they arrived in Japan from China, they had already differentiated into thick green onions (deep green onions) and leaf green onions (Kujo green onions, etc.).[4].

Japanese green onions are roughly divided into three varieties: Kaga, Kujo, and Senju.[19][20]..Kaga is a thick green onion and has excellent cold resistance, and Kujo is a leaf green onion that is harvested throughout the year.[19]..Senju is a thick green onion (deep green onion) and is often shipped in the fall and winter.[19]..Welsh onions are produced in the Senju group and Kaga group, which eat the white part of the leaf sheath (commonly called white root) in eastern Japan, and the green onion in western Japan (Kujo, etc.). Divided into[19][20].

The Kanto region is a suitable place for cultivating deep-rooted green onions.[4][20]..While leaf onions are often cultivated in western Japan where the cultivated soil is shallow, many deep-rooted leeks are produced in eastern Japan where there are many deep cultivated soils.[4][20].

Senju green onion is considered to be a representative variety of deep-rooted green onion.[4][19][20][21]..There are several varieties among them, which are collectively called Senju varieties.[4][22][20]..Initially, it had the property of being divided (the property of being divided into stocks), but it is estimated that it became a single green onion that was not divided due to attempts to improve it in the Meiji era.[5].

The main varieties are Senju Agara, Senju Kurogara, Senju Aiguro, and Senju Aigara.[4][20][22]..These four lines were classified in the Taisho era, and the leaves are divided into four stages from dark green to light green, and among them, "Kurosho" (Senju black pattern) and "Kincho". There were subdivided varieties with unique names such as (Senju Go pattern), "Ishikura" (Senju Go black), and "Tamaki" (Senju red pattern).[5][20][6][23].

  • Senju red pattern: The leaves are light green and can be seen to be slightly divided.The yield is high, but the quality is slightly low.Grows well even in winter[4][20][6].
  • Senju black pattern: A variety that can be shipped from summer, and the color of the leaves is dark green.The quality is excellent and the variety has excellent heat resistance, but the growth from autumn to winter is slightly inferior.[4][22][20][6].
  • Senju Aikuro: Excellent heat resistance and cold resistance, high quality[20].
  • Senju Go pattern: Also written as Senju Go pattern[4][22][5]..It can grow even at low temperatures and has intermediate properties between red and black patterns.The most popular Senju variety[4][22][5][6].
  • Others: As an intermediate type between the combined pattern variety and the red pattern type, the combined red type may be distinguished.[23]..However, red-patterned and go-red varieties are obsolete.[23].

From the Meiji era to the Showa era, local farmers continued to try to improve their varieties, and these varieties spread throughout the country, creating famous production areas for Senju varieties such as Fukaya, Koshigaya, Ishikura, and Tone.[14]..In the 30's of the Showa era, the Senju combination pattern "Kincho" cultivated by Katsushika's Atsushi farmer Juntaro Hase and Seiji father and son was excellent in quality and yield, and was cultivated all over Japan.[14][6]..The transmission of Senju varieties is not limited to the Kanto region, but Niigata prefecture (Gosengoku green onion), Yamaguchi prefecture (Yasuoka green onion), etc. can be seen.[24][25]..As the Senju green onion brand, the fixed species "Edo Senju green onion", "Senju one green onion", andF1 species"Senju green onion" using (1st generation hybrid)[26][3], "Shinjuku Ippon Negi" cultivated in Shinjuku, Katsushika-ku[12][27]and so on.

Cultivation method

Soil with deep cultivated soil and excellent water retention is suitable for growing green onions.[22][6]..Since Senju green onions are cultivated by gathering soil, sand and sand that easily collapsesVolcanic ashSoil is not suitable[6]..The eastern part of Tokyo, including Senju, is an alluvial plain made of earth and sand carried by rivers such as the former Tone River and Arakawa, and is a soil with a mixture of moderate water, sand and clay, and was suitable for cultivating green onions.[6].

Senju varieties are widely cultivated for year-round production because they dormant in winter and continue to grow.[22]..The cropping type is roughly divided into autumn / winter, spring, and summer / autumn depending on the harvest time.[22]..Among the autumn-winter cultivars, the high-quality and heat-resistant Senju Aikuro type is used for the year-end varieties, and the Senju Ai pattern type, which is slightly divided but has low-temperature extensibility, is used for the new year's varieties, and will be shipped after March. For varieties, late extraction (banchusei)[Annotation 4]Is required[22].

The optimum temperature for germination is 15-25 degrees, and the optimum temperature for growth is 15-20 degrees.[22]..Seedlings are transplanted and cultivated, soil is gathered to soften the leaf sheath, and it becomes possible to harvest 220 days after sowing.[22]..Due to the long cultivation period, it is easily damaged by wind and rain, and these are susceptible to incentive diseases.[22]..Since this variety dislikes acidic soil, spray soil lime etc. to adjust the pH value of the soil.[22].

Cooking method and usage

As already mentioned in the section on varieties and brands, deep-rooted green onions, including Senju green onions, mainly eat the whitened part of the leaf sheath that has been softened by soil gathering, but the green leaf part is also soft and tastes good. well,CondimentCan be used for[30]..The white part of the petiole is long and well-made, which is considered to be a good product of Senju green onion.[14]..In raw food, it is used as a condiment including the leaves, and in cooked dishes, it is widely used for charcoal grilling, hot pot ingredients, miso soup ingredients, etc.[30][31].

Senju green onions of good quality are delicious because they do not crumble and become sweet even when cooked in a hot pot or simmered dish.[14].. Recipes that make use of the sweetness of the green onions that have been heated and pulled out, such as "stir-fried Senju green onions" and "Senju green onion kushikatsu," have been devised and can be eaten at restaurants in the Senju area.[32].

Cultivation / harvest experience class

Adachi-kuAt Hirano Elementary School, Kurihara Kita Elementary School, and Senju Futaba Elementary School, there are classes on cultivating Senju green onions using fixed seeds.By using fixed seeds, seeds can be collected after harvesting, so the seeds can be passed on to lower class students and can be used for planting in the next year, so we are learning to connect local agriculture, food, and seeds.[40][41]..Of these, Senju Futaba Elementary School is cultivating on the rooftop vegetable garden.[42].
