Long Red Florence Onion

50 Seeds

$ 3.69

(Allium cepa) Heirloom red onion originating from the Tuscany region of Italy.  Known locally by many names including Rouge de Florence, Rossa Lunga Di Firenze, and Rossa di Toscana, this red, torpedo-shaped onion is traditionally used as a fresh onion for cooking, roasting, and grilling.  Mildly sweet in flavor and exceptionally tender.  Stores approx. one month.  Long-day variety.  90-100 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 2-3" between plants with rows 18" apart.  Fertilize regularly in spring and early summer.
