Onion (Allium cepa). Generally speaking, long-day onions tend to do best in the North and short-day types tend to do best in the South. Growing onions from seed is often the only way to get varieties really suited to your location. Heirloom onion seeds are usually started indoors in late winter for transplanting outside a month or so before the last frost of spring.
Knocked our socks off in our bunching onion trials! We’ve never seen such a uniform, upright bunching onion, not a single leaf leaning over. Gorgeous rows of dark green and vigorous stalks with no bulbing at all, making cleaning easy and quick. Parade has a nice, mild onion flavor. Uniform size • Upright habit. (Allium fistulosum). Maturity 70 days.
