Dixondale Farms exclusive. Sure to be popular at farmers' markets! In 1974, several varieties of onions were grown to evaluate their adaptation to the tough South Texas environmental conditions. One of the yellow varieties that was evaluated was thrown out because it had a percentage of white bulbs. In the spring of 1975, several of these bulbs were planted and then evaluated for uniform maturity, resistance to greening, pink root tolerance, single centers, bolting resistance, and shelf life. Up until now there was only enough seed to grow this for large onion operations. Starting this year, we can produce the seed ourselves and home gardeners and small farmers will have access to this variety. Can be grown in intermediate day areas as well since it is a "late" short day onion.

Price: $11.00

This onion grew quite well for us, and we have a waiting list for next year's onions. We planted 2 cases and had a great yield! They were very sweet and some even kept up to 6 months. Westminster, SC
