Long Day Sampler
We took amounts of the most popular red, white, and yellow varieties—Redwing, Ringmaster, and Walla Walla—and planted them together. What we produce is a wonderful mixed assortment (approximately 5 dozen plants) that provides gardeners with limited space or who want to try some new varieties with an economical option. This combination is a unique offering that gives you a colorful collection of sweet and storage onions.
The total price of your onion plant order will be determined at checkout. Pricing is based on the total number of bunches purchased (see chart to the left).

- only two varieties
- posted by Anne in Pennsylvania on 2016-03-02 11:49:42
The long day sampler we received only contained two varieties, yellow sweet and white sweet. No storage or red onions were included. They grew well but only lasted a short time after harvest. Dixondale told me this lack of variety happens sometimes with the way the plants are planted and harvested. Don't count on getting a specific type of onion with this sampler.

This is my first run with Dixondale and I will definitely be returning. I ordered late last year and the sample packs were among the last available. I planted all 3 varieties in the same beds and all 3 produced terrific onions. All of the plants were healthy and growing quickly. VERY happy with the product and will be back for more!

When you try a new business, it is always hard. How is their product? What if I don't like it? Well, 3 years ago Dixondale Farms was new for me. A friend recommended them and I've been with them ever since. They have excellent products and shipping is easy. My customer's rave about the taste and size of their onions. That's what I need to hear! Although, I haven't had to go through their customer service, but I suspect that would be high quality also.

- Excellent onion mix

I didn't lose a single one of these onion sets this season. No disease or pest issues, and the onions were all tennis ball size or larger, which I was pretty happy with since this was my first year growing onions. The bulbs all waited until mid-July to begin really growing, but after that they took off. Will definitely buy again next year! Bozeman, MT
- Nice variety

This sampler provided a nice variety of onions for fresh use and storage. We planted a bunch of Copra along with them for longer term storage. Nice sized bulbs and colorful, tasty varieties. Made excellent onion rings! Will plant again next year. Avon, Il
- 3 Variety sampler is literally mixed and small
- posted by Sharon Geleta on 2014-04-11 10:28:33
I expected the 3 varieties in the sampler to arrive in 3 separate min-bundles, labeled with their name, so I could plant each variety separately and know which variety was which, 'mixed' to me meaning the 3 minis are combined in one bundle. I also expected normal full size plants. I received one bunch literally mixed all 3 varieties together, not labeled and they're the tiniest wisps of plants. I will use a tweezer to try to pull the plants apart to plant they're so small. Customer service said I should be able to tell white from yellow but I can't, although I can see the red ones. She explained they literally mix the 3 seed varieties all together in the same hopper to be planted totally mixed together. Gee, I wish they'd said that on their website because I would not have purchased. If you don't mind them all together, great, this will suit you, but if you want or expect things organized, a sampler is not! She said there's a 30 day guarantee so if these tiny plants don't grow I can contact them again. As a first time customer with Dixondale, I'll be more cautious in the future. The Cobras I bought seem ok, are bundled together and labeled, although a lot are wispy small as well but there's enough normal size ones I think we'll be ok.

I planted the sampler on a raised bed. All 3 varieties did wonderful. Great bulb size and flavor! Columbus, Ohio
- hit and miss
- posted by Cameron on 2012-10-09 02:53:02
I planted the three different onions from the sampler at the same time, in the same bed, with the same fertilizer. The Walla Walla did great. The Redwings formed very dense but rather small bulbs--but great flavor. The Ringmasters bolted early and were golfball size. But I might be to blame: I stopped the fertilizer regime too soon. Will try again next year.

I have really enjoyed the success i have had with Dixondale onions in the past several years. i have limited space and usually get the sampler mixes. Last year the red onions in the long-day sampler seemed to stay very small and the tops died off early. I am not sure why...trying it again this year.I love using the green tops and small onions all summer while looking forward to the bigger ones in the fall. Thanks Dixondale Farms!
- Love it

Love the sweet sampler! Planted 120 plants last year. Yellow spanish grew fast and mars slowest. All were baseball size or larger. Most were softball size. Can't wait to plant more this year, neighbors love onions as gifts they kept asking for more.

The plants arived in great shape. I grew them in a row between my tomato plants with tremendous results. I ordered an additional set for 2009. Very satisfied with the product which is also very reasonably priced.
