Harvesting: When onion tops have fallen over and turned yellow or brown, they are ready for harvest. Harvest in the morning, lifting onions with a garden fork. Dry them in the garden in the sun for 2 to 3 days, lightly covering the bulbs with straw, or the tops of other onions to prevent sunscald. Cure onions for 3 to 7 days in a dry area with good air circulation. Once dry, cut the roots to 1/4", and the greens to 1" to create a seal, preventing decay.

poor germination
Sharon J Rooney
Owner Response: Hi Sharon, We are sorry you had a hard time germinating these seeds. Onions germinated best when the soil temperature is between 60-85 degrees F. You can also find an article in the Learn More tab on this product page that may also be helpful. Rest assured our seeds are tested frequently to ensure germination exceeds both industry standards and our own. A customer service agent will be with you soon to see how we can help.

This onion has produced beautiful burgundy onions year after year. It has come through no matter how strange the growing season, even when other varieties have failed. Medium sized, perfect.
