Sweet Spanish Onion

50 Seeds

$ 2.99

(Allium cepa)  Long-day variety produces large, thick-necked onions with tawny yellow skins.  Can be harvested early in the season for spring onions or left until fall for large, sweet onions.  Stores for 2-4 months.  High tolerance to pink rot.  115 days to harvest.  50 seeds per pkt.

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.

Still winter

1st attempt at growing onions from seed. Living N. of 46 degrees, but Southshore Lake effect warmth during winter. Located on a south facing ridge ~1/2 mile inland and a few hundred feet above Lake level allows for zone 5 plants to thrive. . But the Lake keeps temperatures on the cool to mild side during summer. Especially the night time temperatures. Just sowed ~1/2 the package (~25 seeds) to check out the germination rate. Usually don't transplant any cold intolerant items until after the Memorial Day weekend. Night time temps are a bit too cool. Hope is to have a crop of spring green onions and mature onions. 3 stars for now for the fast shipping and quality packaging. If germination rate is >67% the seeds will earn a 4th star. 4th or 5th stars if the seeds yield a good quality onion.
