Best onion in a long time
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Apr 24, 2017
I just purchased my new order of Copras since I was so happy with them last year. I did not have any reach the 4 inch size but all the onions were perfect shaped and have been the superb storage onion. They keep better than any onion I've ever grown. Taste is out of this world and are the best fajita onions ! LOVE THEM ! Decorah, Iowa

best quality onions I ever had
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Nov 17, 2016
I live in North Dakota right on the Canadian border. I ordered several bunches of Copra onion in May, and then was unable to plant until the middle of June. I was afraid the plants would be too dried out to do much, but no! They were very vigorous as soon as planted, and turned into big and beautiful crop! I have enough onions to probably last me until next harvest. I do feel Dixondale provides the best quality onions I have ever seen.

We have tried almos all of the onions you produce, but the Copra is our favorite. It lasts almost until mid June!! We never run out of onions. I don't know if they are supposed to get this big but we have many that are 4" +

Copra Disappointed in 2014
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Mar 4, 2015
Our 2014 Copra bulbs remained extremely small. Same soil & preparation as the Red Zeppelin and Yellow Sweet Spanish we grew, which both gave outstanding results and stored extremely well. We're still enjoying onions from last year's garden every day! Not sure why the Copra failed to grow, but we'll try Highlanders this year instead.

Best Onion I Have Ever Grown
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Apr 23, 2013
I'm in my 60's. I helped my dad garden when I was a kid. I quit gardening in my early 20's but took it back up again in 1982 when I got married. I had bad luck with growing onions back then. They either would not grow or they would not store. I decided it was cheaper to buy them at the store and use the space for other veggies. Some years ago my wife wanted to grow onions again. By a stroke of excellent luck I stumbled across Copra Onion Plants. They are the longest storing onion I have ever seen. The key to storage for any onion is to separate the ones that look like they will go bad from the ones that look like they will keep. The short storage ones get used immediately. Those are the ones with thick necks or soft spots on or near the neck. The thinner the neck the longer the onion will keep. Onions that rot in storage will make your good onions rot too. I used to think all onions tasted pretty much the same except for the Walla Walla's Copra has a superior taste to other onions. When cooked in casseroles, stews, and ETC. it has a sweet taste that somehow enhances the flavor of whatever it is you are cooking. One final thing about storage. I still have onions from last fall and it's late April as I write this. With any luck I should be running out right at the time I will be harvesting more. I PREFER FERTILIZING WITH COMPOST. I have noticed that the better you fertilize these Copras with compost the better they taste and the longer they keep. Onions are heavy feeders. My compost may be different from others. I have fruit trees and the waste from those trees goes in my compost. I also shop and shred my sweet corn stalks BEFORE they dry out and are still green. They really heat a pile up. I should sell the finished product but I don't even have enough of it for myself. Conclusion; I feel that you can't go wrong in selecting Copras as your main onion crop. Just feed and water them well.They will do the rest.

I am in NE Pa and grew copra last year, they were great! Lots of size, very little rot and are keeping very well. I did not water and our weather was both rainy and dry. Would highly recommend these plants.

In our area of Mn it was super dry, we did water them, not as much as we would have liked(worried about how low the well was). They did well considering that they got blown over in an extreme wind rather early. When I say dry, we mowed our 5 acres exactly twice this summer!Brownsdale, MN

Copras are the best for the North
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Jul 17, 2011
Zone 5/6 North of Pittsburgh. This is the second time I have grown them here. Baseball and larger size bulbs this year from Copra. They look like jumbo sweet Spanish or Kelsey Sweets. Lots of rain in the Spring, no rot. More resistant to thrips and drought than other long day storage varieties I have grown. Raised beds tend to do better, just be sure to never let them dry out and irrigate when they are starting to bulb. Organic grower for 10 years or so and I cant recommend these enough. Always a good performer. Best storage onion by far for the North!

I've been planting Copra onions for years in Western New York but the best luck I have had is with the ones from Dixondale Farms ! I usually have more then I need and share them with my neighbor who has been awed by the size of them.They keep forever and as I write this on St. Patricks day I am still using the onions I have stored from last fall !

I have been growing copra, mars and walla walla for 3 years now in the Santa Cruz CA mountains with great results ! last year there was a small amount of bolting. My friend in Santa Cruz right by the ocean said her copra and mars were great even with insufficient bed prep ! Her Walla Wallas did not do well, this year she will pull and use those as green and spring onions.

Copras make nice hard onions I routinely keep into January or later. This year, however, most of them bolted, even though other varieties nearby did not. May not keep as well.

After many disappointed years trying to grow storage onions from sets, we finally found Dixondale Farms and ordered Copra plants in 2009. Every plant produced a keeper onion that we are still using in April. They are still hard and juicy. Wow.MONTANA

Bolted Copras kept well!
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Feb 5, 2010
I've been growing Copra as my main onion crop here in northern NH for several years & have always been happy with them. Last summer was wet & cool and they still did well. I know onions that send up a flower stalk don't store well, so I was going to discard a number of Copras that bolted. Instead, since they cured well, I stored them with the rest of my onions. To my amazement the bolted Copras are still fine, with only a dried, brown central stalk to remove when chopping them up.

The absolute best keeper, these onions do extremely well for us in southwest colorado, Iam still selling them at our winter markets and plan on selling them through spring. We are always eating on these as we are planting the new crop. I am also very happy with the size we get on these here, the average for us is a pound to a pound and a half.Pleasant View, Colorado

Planted Copra as part of the Long Day Sampler. We are technically intermediate day here in Central CA, but after a mediocre harvest the previous season (with intermediate day selections we had made), we opted for long day varieties. . . We kept everything the same on the input side and Copra loved it all. 100% success and a real winner here in Grass Valley, CA.

I grew Copra in quest of a keeper despite the fact that Southwest Virginia is not close to northern long day. To my delight one bunch produced about 20 pounds of nice tennis ball sized onions.
