When to sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost, or as soon as soil can be worked; when soil temperature is at least 45°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 10 to 12 weeks before average last frost. Transplant outdoors 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost. The earlier the start, the bigger/earlier the bulb is produced. Ideal soil temperature is 60°–85°F.

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 to prevent entrance of decay organisms.
