Toscana Onion (120 days) -Discontinued

Intermediate-Long Day

A specialty onion, similar to Red Long of Tropea with its elongated shape and size. Differs because it has a white interior, light brown skin and stores longer than the red variety. We started indoors in the middle of March and we had usable onions ready by mid July.   150 seeds 

 

 

PLANTING:

Germination-5-10 days

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.

    lost but not forgotten

    I absolutely loved these onions. They over wintered beautifully! I am very sad they are now "discontinued". I'll keep checking back periodically, in case you bring them back.....
