3 reviews
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.
