Growing Onion

14 Mar 09 Ferolyn (Australia - temperate climate)
I found a forgotten red onion in my cupboard few months ago and it already has aboiut 3inches of shoot. I planted it. Now I have a tall stem of about almost 3feet with a pretty pompom flower on it. Would i still have onion out of it? It now has little pids on the pompom. I broke one of its pods out of curiosity and it has little black round bits inside... is that the seed? Would i get onions if i plant those seeds?
