Availability: In Stock
The 'Sweet Spanish' onion was grown in the U.S. at least as far back as 1916. 'Yellow Sweet Spanish Utah' is from that early type, producing large, 3"–6" globe-shaped bulbs with amazingly mild, sweet flavor. A long-day variety, it grows best in states north of the 37th parallel. Utah designated this onion the state vegetable in 2002. Caramelize onions for the perfect patty melt condiment.

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.

Nice Big Flavorful Onions

5 out of 5 stars Aug 15, 2020
I grew these in our regular garden bed & in our Hugelkulture raised bed. They grew well in both, but were a little larger in the Hugelkulture bed. Wonderful onions. Nice colored skins for braiding. Will use again.

Worked well for my first try from seeds

Grew this in 10a SF bay area. Started in Feb, were mature in Aug. I seeded into cups and let the ones that came up grow for a few months before transplanting to a bed. They did not all get enough sun, so my recommendation is to place them in a particularly sunny location. Also, Onions want water and want it every day, so don't skimp. They take a long time but not all that much space. Seeds are small and maturity takes time, so these are a plan-ahead sort of crop. Very happy with what I got from this packet. Recommended.

Seeds are strong

I planted these onion seeds and 4 other vege on March 10th. Today is March 13th. Saw my first onion sprouting yesterday. Checked again today - more sprouts poking up from the onions. I'm very pleased and hope the growth continues for all of my seeds. Reserving a 5- star rating for farther into the growing/harvesting season.
