2

Germ 5-10 days / LONG DAY

PLANTING:

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.

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.
