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.

Days to Germ. 7-14
Plant Spacing 3-6”
Row Spacing 12-24”
Days To Maturity 110–125

Great for roasted vegetables, au gratin and onion rings. Light brown skin, white flesh, upright plants, dry down well, not for long-term storage. Our CF selection Bred by Jim Christopherson over 15 years on his farm in southwest Washington. Many selections and strains of Walla Walla onion exist in today’s market. Several of these selections are unique to a particular farm or locale. Our selection is well adapted to various growing areas and is used both inside the Walla Walla growing district, in surrounding regions and across the U.S. The CF Selection performs well either as a fall seeding in mild winter areas or as a Spring transplant.
The outstanding characteristics of the CF Selection are early maturity, excellent size, high single centers, great bolting tolerance, very uniform shape and maturity. The improved uniformity and maturity along with the high single centers provides a longer harvest, packing and shipping window. The CF Selection has provided growers with a higher percentage of marketable onions even when compared to current hybrid sweet onions. Our selection will also provide your business with a very consistent sweet to mild flavor characteristic every season. Jim calls it, “The sweetest onion there is.”
Tags: Type: Intermediate-Day, Color: Yellow, Shape: Round, Heritage: Heirloom, Season: Spring Fall.
