Warrior Bunching Onion (60 days)

4 reviews

A recent 2016 All American Selection award winner that is ready 60 days from direct seeding and just 30 days after transplanting into the garden. We observed that it was more robust and earlier than our others onions, growing quickly, and held up well as we continued picking them over time. Uniform, slender stems are perfect for harvesting at ½”.    

400 seeds  

Please note that germination rates for alliums (onions/shallots/chives/leeks) decline rapidly. We strongly encourage you to purchase new seed each growing season.

PLANTING

Allium cepa

Germination: 5-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75ºF. 

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4" deep

Sowing Indoors: Start 8-10 weeks before last frost with soil temperatures 60-75ºF. Sow 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 size should be about a pencil thick at transplanting time.

Sowing OutdoorsEarly to mid-spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55 ºF. Sow 1-3 seeds per inch, thin to 2-6” apart. The larger the bulb size the more space. 

How much does a packet plant: 15-30 foot single row  

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.

    The scallions that keep on giving

    These onions had a really nice germination rate. I read another review that talked about trimming the tops to use, and I've been doing that since they were about 1 month old. I trim them every other week or so and use them in wheat bread, brown rice, etc. Since hubby loves to eat the bulbs only (with a cold beer of course) it's wonderful to use those tops instead of him discarding them in the garden. I have both evergreen and warrior. Warrior is bigger. They've been wonderful and I plan to do this yearly. Just remember that onion seeds don't save well for second year use, so grow all you got. The cut greens easily last a week in fridge, or are frozen for later use.
