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.

    I recommend this product
    Garden failure.

    I had a garden failure this year. Our soil is so alkaline that nothing grew in the containers. I am working with the soil to get it in better condition and will try again next season. I cannot say this product has a problem as I didn't have the chance of growing it this season.

    Great for all spring onion recips

    Exactly as in the photo - and this is my first onion growing experience. They're fresh and not too sharp, but flavorful and crisp. We enjoy them and I will plant them again.
