ONION Mixed Globe


A mix of yellow, white and red globe onions. Ideal for slicing and storing and as colorful as they are delicious, great in salads, soups and stews. Stores well. Approximately 110 days to maturity.

Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow indoors in flats in early spring or sow seed directly outdoors as soon as soil is workable. Cover seeds with 1/4 inch fine soil. Leave 6 to 18 inches between rows. Can be spaced 6 inches apart in all directions for intensified solid bed plantings.

THINNING & TRANSPLANTING: When seedlings are about 4 inches tall, thin or transplant 5 to 6 inches apart.

GERMINATION: Usually 10 to 15 days depending upon soil and weather conditions. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Best results are obtained when onions are planted in a sunny location with well drained, well fertilized soil kept moderately moist. At maturity bend over tops to hasten ripening.
