Ratings & Reviews
A large and handsome onion
First onion I’ve ever grown. It was a learning experience! The seedling need to be kept constantly moist or they dry out immediately. Out of about 18 seeds, only two were harvestable, but I blame that entirely on my inexperience. I think more consistent watering would have improved them even more. I harvested my first of these today and it’s a very large and handsome onion.
