ORGANIC For generations this variety has been the pride of Washington State's onion producing region. This famous Northwest gourmet sweet onion can be grown from seed. In long and intermediate day areas where temperatures do not drop below -10 degrees. They can be planted between August 15th and September 1st 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.How to Plant Bulb Onions
Onion bulbs are quite hardy and can withstand 20° F frost. They should be set out 4-6 weeks prior to the last expected frost. When your plants arrive they should appear to be quite dry. DO NOT WET THEM NOR STICK THEIR ROOTS IN WATER. Unpack them and store them in a cool, dry place until it is time to plant. They should last about 3 weeks kept this way. Do not worry that your plants seem dry. They will "shoot" new roots and new, green tops as soon as they are planted. Be sure to specify on your order when you want your plants to arrive.
