SHORT DAY - A classic red skin onion suitable for southern growers that produce 4” bulbs with a mild, sweet flavor. Excellent slicing variety with white and pink interior rings. Best plan on using this onion up before your other ones, as it does not store as long.
Onion plants will be shipped direct to you from our grower in Texas. Your plants will be shipped via Priority Mail (or UPS for larger orders) to ensure you receive the freshest plants possible at the proper time for planting. Our grower starts shipping to southern gardeners in January, so please feel free to request a specific ship date. Order with a friend to accommodate the 2 bunch minimum.
***We will not accept orders for onion plants after May 31st***
WE DO NOT SHIP ONION PLANTS TO ALASKA, HAWAII AND CANADA
Onion plants arrive dormant. They will be dry and recover once properly planted. Full sun, fertile soil, and 1 inch of water a week are essential needs for successful onion bulbs. Plant in soil amended with compost, well aged manure or a balanced fertilizer. Harvest bulbs when the necks have become soft and fall over. Pull up and dry for a few days in the field (if there is not rain predicted) Move indoors to continue drying, 2-3 weeks until stems are dry,( you won't be able to squeeze any water out of the necks) Cut off tops and roots and store in mess bags, above freezing at 65-70% humidity.
