Short-Day Varieties

Available November 11, 2013—April 14, 2014

Map for short day varietiesThe short-day varieties start the bulbing process when daylight length reaches 10-12 hours. They take approximately 110 days to mature in the south and just 75 days in the north. The earlier you plant them, the larger they get, but they won't get very big in the northern states. All short-day varieties are sweet except the Red Creole, which is a great short-day storage onion.
