Ailsa Craig Heirloom Yellow Onion

50 Seeds

$ 3.69

(Allium cepa) Large, heirloom onion named after the small rock island off the coast of Scotland.  Introduced in 1887 by David Murray, gardener for the Marquis of Ailsa.  Plants produce consistent yields of large onions averaging 1-2lbs each and measuring up to 6" across.  Lovely, golden-skinned onions have a mild, sweet flavor that works well in a variety of dishes and their large size makes them perfect for burgers and tenderloins.  A very easy variety to grow from seed.  Onions pictured here were started from seed in January and set out in March when plants were little more than threads.  Mature onions store approximately one month.  Long-day variety.  100 days from transplant.  50 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  Start indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost.  Sow seeds 1/4" deep in well moistened seed starting mix and cover with a plastic dome.  Set in a warm place and keep moist until germination has occurred (7-14 days).  Once most of the seed has germinated, remove the plastic top and give plants access to light (if not already) Trim tops down when they reach 4-5" to prevent them from becoming tangled.  After 4-6 weeks, transplant seedlings, either into the garden or into an intermediate container.  In new location, poke a 2-3" deep hole in the soil with a pencil, carefully tease apart seedling from tray and lower the seedling into the hole, burying 1/4" of stem.  Final spacing should be 4-5" between plants with rows 18" apart.  Fertilize regularly in spring and early summer.
