Red Wethersfield Onion

50 Seeds

$ 3.49

(Allium cepa) Heirloom red onion first introduced in 1834 by Hovey & Co. of Boston.  Originally named Large Red, the variety was eventually renamed Red Wethersfield due to its immense popularity with producers in Wethersfield, Connecticut.  Great for fresh eating, grilling and roasting.  Long-day variety.  120 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.
