Now it is possible to grow a sweet storage onion in the north with the mild flavor of a short-day southern variety! Produces very large, deep globe -shaped bulbs with small necks and golden brown skin. If well-cured, keeping them until March should be no problem. If a northern gardener wanted a sweet storage onion, this one would be the type to grow. Nearly as tasty as Texas Supersweet!$4.05

This produces handsome yellow, globe-shaped jumbos and colossal. The most uniformly sweet variety weve ever eaten and always tender. Never a hot one; nor a tough, thin-layered one. We cant grow it in the North, but every May we buy a bushel from Texas to use during summer because it stores better than any other Short Day variety, often keeping right through the heat of the summer until mid-September.$3.15
For generations this variety has been the pride of Washington States onion-producing region. The famous northwest gourmet sweet onion can be grown from seed. In long and intermediate day areas where temperatures do not drop below -10° F, they can be planted between August 15 and September 1 and overwintered under a light mulch for harvest the following late June or early July. For colder areas it's best to raise seedlings and set out transplants in early to mid April. Not a storage onion.
