Darkest Red Storage Selection

$4.00$12.00

The Darkest Red Storage selection is seed from the darkest specimens in the “Superior Red Storage Onion Grex”. We positioned the darkest red specimens together in the superior red grow out to promote more crossing with dark specimens with the hopes of not losing the incredible vigor that comes from the diversity and quantity of onions in the population. Our goal is to continue selection to develop a deep dark skinned and darker fleshed onion with great storage. These dark onions are beautiful and have red coloring that extends deeper into the interior of the onion, a trait we don’t often see in other onion varieties. When sliced these will often bleed red  onto the cutting board of which I am sure is a sign of their health giving properties and perhaps anthocyanin content. We are excited to offer you seed of this work in progress. Note: seed is from all of the dark specimens and will be mostly crosses of dark to dark while there will be specimens with crosses to less dark specimens and possibly some yellow still mixed in from the original “storage onion grex population” that gave rise to this expiration in onion diversity. Day neutral!
