Will grow best in a fairly rich, light loam with plenty of organic matter (compost, etc). Soil must be kept moist and keep well-weeded. This onion grows to a large size. Matures in about 14-17 weeks. When tops start to yellow, cease watering. Harvest when tops are dead, and cure in a shady airy place for 2 weeks before storing.

Great producer. Great keeper

We have been a big fan of this variety for several years. Last years crop came in at four bushels. Were in mid-April now and they are still doing great in storage and well process the remainder soon and freeze them.
