From the breeders of Copra and Prince, this yellow storage onion is considered an improvement based on its wider adaptability and storage life. Thick copper skin, fine necks, and round shape. Uniform size makes grading easy. Tolerant to Fusarium and Pink Root. Quickly becoming a standard yellow keeper for organic growers everywhere.
NOTE: This item is grown to order only.

You may plant in clumps if you want more produce per square foot even though they will be a little smaller.  Harvest scallions whenever you are ready to eat them.  You can try just cutting the greens and see if they will grow back or you can pull them out.  Harvest sweet onions when the bulb reaches a decent size and storage onions when the leaves are 2/3rds brown.  Leeks will stay in the ground through October into November. Set plants 6–12″ apart, onions 4–6″ in trenches in well-dug beds with generous quantities of organic matter. Avoid transplanting next to grass strips; slugs love to dine on tiny allium seedlings. Irrigate seedlings whenever the topsoil dries out.
