Storage Onion Grex

$4.00$14.00

With the growth in popularity of f1 hybrid storage onions we set out to create a breeders population of f1 crosses from as many open pollinated storage onions as we could find. We combined strains like Newberg and Rosy Opal from Peace Seeds and Seedlings, Mary Nagy’s Red and Carmen Purple among others from Adaptive Seeds, refined heirlooms like Dakota Tears from the Podalls of North Dakota and many varieties from Seed Savers exchange. We grew out all varieties starting in trays in mid February. The harvest was selected for size, hardness and beauty. 1500 bulbs where selected and then subjected to a winter long storage where 400 of the best specimens were identified and replanted. These seeds are the result of this 400 specimen hybrid swarm. These will work wonders for beautiful fresh market display and storage! Plant in trays shooting to drop seeds ¼” apart, topdress with compost bi-weekly or as needed transplanting out in early May. Allow onions to dry in field until tops flop over for best storage.
