Accidental Heritage

I recieved my new packet of short-day bulbing onions from the University of Hawaii. I've discovered these are rare Heritage seeds!

The Seeds of Diversity, Heritage Plants Database says,

Awahia Onion
Seed Availability:
Not currently propagated by Seeds of Diversity's seed-savers.
Available from only a few mail-order seed companies. Very difficult to find.
Not maintained by the Canadian gene bank.
Maintained by the U.S. gene bank.

I'm proud to have these seeds. I hope I am able to keep this line of Awahia onions going. I want to save it's seed for next season. I hope I can do it successfully.
