The weight of onions varies from 1 to 20 grams. The flower is the first organ to emerge from the soil in mid-autumn. Each onion has 1 to 3 purple flowers and each flower has 6 petals. The female is located in the center of the flower and has a glandular ovary, and a thin cream comes out of the ovary. The yellow cream is divided into a transparent red-orange stigma with 3 branches.
