1

Germ 5-10 days
A high quality white, perfectly round, 3/4” onion for pickling. Also great in a cream sauce for your holiday table. 150 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 8-10 weeks before last frost with soil temperatures 60-75 degrees. Plant in flats 1/4” deep, 1/4” apart. Transplant seedlings out mid/late spring, 2-6” apart. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Seedlings should be about a pencil thick in size at planting time.

Outdoors- Sow lightly, 1/4” deep early spring. Thin to 2-6” apart.

Harvest- Stop watering a week before harvesting. Pull out when tops fall over and skin develops. Cure them by drying them until the neck is dry, out of direct sunlight, in a warm area, and in single layer so air can circulate around them.

Tips- Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water,1” per week for optimum growth.

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
