New York Early Onion
This heirloom onion
has become very hard to find, but many gardeners say it is unequaled for quality.
We have sought out a source so that we can carry it again, after an absence. Yellow globes, firm and good keepers, but with enough sweetness for sandwich and salad use as well as cooking. Long day.
BOTANICAL NAME: Allium cepa
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: Start seeds in flats early in the season; 10 weeks before planting date. Transplant seedlings 4" apart. Grows best in a fairly rich, light loam adequate in potassium, phosphorus, but not too much nitrogen. Does not flourish in clay. Soil must be kept moist and weeded. Matures in 14-17 weeks. When tops start to yellow, bend over the tops on all the plants, and start withholding water. After two weeks of dry curing in the ground, you can dig them.
