The Tokyo Negi, when mature, outwardly resembles a leek but it is grown for its onion properties. It gets its first name for its popularity in cooking within the Tokyo region. The scientific name for negi is Allium fistulosum, and it is also known as the naga negi.
Long and sleek, with hallow tubular green tops and bright white elongated roots which never form a bulb, the Tokyo Negi offers just an essence of an onion bite; its flavor is mild, savory and sweet.
Use Tokyo Negi onions as you would green onions or scallions. Roast whole onions in the oven or grill until softened and browned, serve as a started or side. Add diced Tokyo Negi onions to tofu miso soup at the end of cooking for a fresh onion flavor. Mix diced onion with miso paste and soy sauce, then use as a dipping sauce for grilled vegetable or beef skewers. Tokyo Negi onions will keep, refrigerated, for up to a week.
Tokyo Negi is most often used for Nabemono (one pot dishes) and Kushiyaki,a traditional non-meat yakitori style preparation, both dishes specifically within Japanese cuisines.
The Tokyo Negi is a perennial allium native to Siberia and Northwestern China though it is primarily grown in Japan. Its growth is vigorous in the Spring and Autumn and it goes dormant during the Winter and Summer months. This onion variety is rarely grown outside of Japan but it is becoming a specialty onion variety throughout markets within California and Hawaii with higher Asian populations.
