I would buy again
by Jon Otto
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.
