I was very apprehensive. I planted Copra onions for years. I found the Pattersons to be bigger and to my surprise, sweeter and just generally better onions. We'll see how they keep over the winter. If they will keep like a Copra, it's game on.
very weak plants. In all my years of starting onions under lights inhouse, I've never had such an issue.
They are planted and under lights in the basement. They came up very well and are growing nicely.
They are up and growing in the green room. Will tell more when I eat my first one.
I wanted to try Copra, but got Patterson instead because Copra was no longer stocked.. I start my onions inside and grow under lights, but got them started a little to late to get good big seedlings. Then when I should have planted them out in the garden; a tornado felled a huge tree on my garden. It was July before we could get that tree cut up and hauled away and by then the soil was packed hard. The onion seedlings still in their little container didn't look too hot any more either; but I chiseled holes in the garden dirt and set them in. They didn't do anything nut sit there and sulk for a month, but eventually they did make small onions which I dutifully harvested when frost came. It's mid January now and those little onions are firm and perfect. They taste delicious in whatever is cooked with them. I shall try them again and hope for better growing conditions. Garden tornadoes are not very common and that big tree that was shading the garden is gone.
