ONION SOUTHPORT BNCH

Description
Southport White Globe Onion Seeds (White Bunching Type) 1830 Heirloom Vegetable. An excellent white bunching onion that is well adapted to northern growing areas. The bulbs are round, medium sized and solid with thin delicate skin. The flesh is white, fine grained and mild. An excellent direct seeding variety as they mature very quickly. A good keeper. Suitable for regions where the weather tends to rapidly shift between hot and cool during the summer.

How to Grow
280 seed/gram. Seed can be started indoors in a soil-less growing medium in February. The seedlings can then be transplanted outside later in spring. Seed can also be sown directly outdoors from mid April, 8-15 mm (1/4-1/2″) deep and 15 mm (1/2″) apart in rows 30 cm (12″) apart. Thin to 5 cm (3″) apart for cooking onions, and 7.5 cm (3″) apart for the sweet Spanish types. Onions do best in a sunny site with fertile, well drained soil. Bend over any flower stalks that start to grow so the plant’s energy goes into building the bulb. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20’) of row.
