Blush Onion (F1 Hybrid 115 Days)

Long day

 

Pink skinned onions are new to us and to the American market but have been grown in France for centuries.  Attractive inside and out; rose-pink skin with light purple blushed rings and when eaten starts off sweet, ending with a nice onion bite. Produces large blocky shaped bulbs with excellent storage ability.    

150 seeds  

Please note that germination rates for alliums (onions/shallots/chives/leeks) decline rapidly. We strongly encourage you to purchase new seed each growing season.

Harvest- Stop watering a week before harvesting. Pull out when necks soften and start to fall over. Cure them in the sun for a few days then finish drying them out of direct sunlight, in a warm area, and in a single layer so air can circulate around them until the neck is dry. Store in a cool dark place with 35-40ºF temperatures and 65-70% humidity.

Tips- Needs fertile, well-drained soil. Amend with compost or apply organic granular fertilizer. Adequate water is very important for optimum growth, 1" per week.
