Presumably the same as Earth onions.
Onion is used externally as an antiseptic. Internally, it can alleviate gas pains, reduce hypertension, and reduce cholesterol. Nursing mothers should use onion in small amounts, as the onion in breast milk can sometimes cause colic in sensitive babies. Onions increase sperm. They kill worms in children if they drink the water in which the Onions have been steeped all night. Roasted Onions, eaten with honey or sugar and oil, help an inveterate cough and expectorate tough phlegm. Snuffed up the head, the juice purges the head and helps lethargy. The juice is good for scalds and burns, and used with vinegar it takes away blemishes, spots and marks in the skin. The properties of Onion are similar to Garlic. It is antiseptic, diuretic and expectorant. The juice is made into a syrup with honey and used as a medicine for coughs, asthma and bronchitis. Homoeopaths prescribe pills made from the Onion for hay fever and rhinitis. A tincture of onion made by steeping an Onion in alcohol is diuretic and used to expel sediment from the bladder and to treat dropsy.
Medicinal Uses in Brief:
Antiseptic properties; alleviate gas pains; reduce hypertension; reduce cholesterol; increase sperm; kill intestinal worms; expectorant; diuretic.
Warning: Nursing women should refrain from onion as it can taint the breast milk and cause colic.
"I have peas and turnips, garlic and onions in my hut." — Outlaw of Gor, page 29.
"I saw too, fields, fenced with rocks, in the sloping area. In them were growing, small at this season, shafts of Sa-Tarna; too, there would be peas, and beans, cabbages and onions, and patches of the golden sul, capable of surviving at this latitude." — Marauders of Gor, page 81.
"A great amount of farming, or perhaps one should speak of gardening, is done at the oasis, but little of this is exported. At the oasis will be grown a hybrid, brownish Sa-Tarna, adapted to the heat of the desert; most Sa-Tarna is yellow; and beans, berries, onions, tuber suls, various sorts of melons, a foliated leaf vegetable, called Katch, and various root vegetables, such as turnips, carrots, radishes, of the sphere and cylinder varieties, and korts, a large, brownish-skinned, thick-skinned, sphere-shaped vegetable, usually some six inches in width, the interior of which is yellowish, fibrous and heavily seeded. At the oasis, because of the warm climate, the farmers can grow two or more crops a year. Larma and tospits are also grown at the oases, in small orchards. Some rep is grown, for cloth, but most cloth comes to the oases from caravans." — Tribesmen of Gor, page 37.
