I would buy again


I tried this for the first time in my garden this year. I had to pick them early as the Derecho affected my crop this year. I picked them before they were done growing so they were a little small but they had good flavor. I have no idea what size they would have been if I would have let them grow to full maturity. This was my first attempt at growing onions from seed. Very easy to grow.

Great germination, size, flavor & storage.


I grew these last year, 2020. I started them indoors beginning of February and transplanted them about the 3rd week of March. We’re in Northeast Ohio, so the onions were harvested towards the end of July. When I use some of the onions when they are young, they’re on the sweet side. When they are fully mature, I consider them mild. After they’re stored for a couple of months, they’re still mild but after another month they start getting a bit stronger. They sweeten up when sautéed & roasted. It’s May, 2021 and I still have some onions that have not sprouted. I’m growing these again this year & will grow them every year. They germinate well & out perform a lot of other varieties for storage & size. The flavor is comparable to a sweet Spanish onion when young & a couple months after harvest.

Great size


Bought these 11/20 and started them 3/21. Planted them out around the first of May. Started slow til' they got established. Then wow!! Great size and that was taking them out of the ground a little early. At 10-12 oz. a piece I was very happy. Hope they store well. Going to plant them again next year . Going to try to grow some for seeds too!!
