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 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.

Red Wing Onions in MN

We grow this onion here in central MN and have been very pleased with it. It has a good, mild flavor and keeps remarkable well. It is our favorite onion.

Onion seeds

I have grown onions from Pinetree’s seeds in my zone 4 garden for several years now. They are the best! I start in cells, close together, trimmed to about 3” under lights a couple months before planting out. I end up with organic sweet onions to use all winter. Pinetree’s customer service is great too!

red wing flies above the others

I have been growing this variety for several years. I find it reliable and easy to grow. It is superior in flavor and is about the best red keeper I have ever had. It is getting late in February and I still have several braids of these beautiful red onions hanging in my pantry. They are still firm and do not yet show a hint of growth.
