Long Day Onion Plant Collection

Long Day Onion Plant Collection







Plants/Bulbs are only available for specific ship dates. Please see shipping info below.
Consists of 10 bunches (500-600 transplants) each of the following varieties: Candy, Redwing and Super Star (1500-1800 transplants total).

Candy is a neutral day, hybrid cross between a short-day and a long-day onion. It can be produced in all areas of the U.S. Candy is less pungent than typical northern grown onions and stores better than the typical southern grown varieties. The sweet, mild flavor of Candy can be enjoyed late into winter if the bulbs are properly cured and stored in a cool, dry area.

Redwing is a long day variety that produces nice globe-shaped, deep red 3-4" bulbs when grown from our transplants. It has proven to be a widely adaptable variety and stores better (8-10 months) than other red onion varieties. 110-120 days to harvest.

Super Star is a mid-day or day length neutral white onion, which means that it can be grown anywhere in North America. It's 20 days earlier to mature than other White Sweet Spanish types with no sacrifice in bulb size. The globe-shaped bulbs are attractive, have a mild, sweet flavor and retain their skins well. Super Star keeps well for a mild white onion, but like other whites, it’s not recommended for long-term storage.
