In southern regions of the country, onions are grown in the winter and early spring, when the days are shorter.
Here in the north we plant onions in the spring and grow them throughout the long days of summer.
It is important to choose the right type of onion for the area you grow in.
Here are varieties we have grown.
Next year we will add to this list as we try a few more varieties. If you have a favorite, let us know so we can make it a point to plant them. Thanks!
Note that DTM stands for days to maturity and that will vary with the weather.
The storage time listed is optimal, and may also vary.
|Sterling||white||6 months||95||mild flavor|
|Copra||yellow||1 year||110||smaller than most|
|Walla Walla||yellow||1 month||90||Great flavor|
|Red Zeppelin||dark red||6 months||100||Our favorite red so far.|
|Ailsa Craig||yellow||1 month||95 days||huge!|
