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 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.

Whate Pickling onions

I'm from Wisconsin. It was and still is hard to find pearl onion and pickling onion seed. I was thrilled when I spotted them in the Pinetree seed catalog. It was my first year growing them, so I experienced some trial and error. All in all I would say it went well. I planted a second crop, but not soon enough and so nothing came up. However my first crop was a success. When canning bread and butter pickles I added them to the batch. My mother always had them in her bread and butter pickles, that is why I love them so much. Thanks so much Pinetree, for carrying pickling onions
