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.

Fantastic Fresh Onion

I grew onions for the first time this year and had great success with this variety. They are the perfect size to be used fresh in salads and pasta salad. Next year I will succession plant them so that I have onions all through the summer. As another reviewer already mentioned, these onions do not store well.

Delicious onion

Absolutely wonderful onion. Great for adding to cooking, or sautéed with a bit of olive oil. This onion is not a keeper, but no worries. I start small batches every couple of weeks, and transplant. Very good flavor, and I definitely purchase it every year
