HOW TO GROW ONION

Start indoors 8–10 weeks before last frost, plant out 4 weeks before frost. For fall harvest, transplant 11 weeks before first frost. Short-day onions produce bulbs in 11-12 hours of light, long-day onions in 14-16 hours. The dividing line is 36˚, about the KA/OK border. Plant long-day varieties north of this line and short-day south. Direct sow thickly as soon as soil can be worked. If tops reach 5” before transplant, cut to 1-3” to increase girth. Transplant seedlings in shallow trench 2-7” apart. Hill sides slightly after 4-5 weeks. Knock the rest of the tops over when 60 percent have fallen. After 3 days, pull and sun-cure 7–10 days in field rotating every few days before twisting off tops and storing. Soil pH 6.2-7.5. Hardiness zones 3-10. Biennial.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 6,500 seeds per ounce. Average 580M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 70%. Usual seed life: 2–3 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1 mile.

Yellow, globe to slightly elongated shaped, sweet flavor. First introduced in 1887 by David Murray, the gardener for the Marquis of Ailsa, at Culzean Castle in Maybole, South Ayrshire in Scotland. Brought to the U.S. from the British Isles, this sweet heirloom onion is by far the largest onion you can grow in a short growing season. If you are looking for show-size variety with which to win the county fair for largest onion, this is it. Common Ground Country Fair, Maine, Blue ribbon winner. Good for families or restaurants cooking for groups of people. Pump these up with lots of nitrogen to get them as big as basketballs, size potential 8”, up to 2 plus pounds. Best used fresh from the garden, not intended for long term storage. Also known as the Kelsae Sweet Giant. Tags: Type: Long-Day, Color: Yellow, Size: Large, Shape: Round, Specialty: Cool Climate, Heritage: Heirloom, Season: Spring Fall.
