Highlander

SKU #HL
Availability: In Stock
Highlander
  • Yellow, slightly flat globe shaped, sweet, hybrid
  • Size Potential: 3-4"
  • Storage Potential: 4-5 months
  • Days to Harvest: 85-90

Slightly flat, globe-shaped bulbs are lighter in color than most long day varieties, but the bulbs are very firm with thin necks. This is the main variety planted by large onion farmers in the northeastern United States for early marketing. Excellent yield potential with primarily jumbo production. Since it is an extra-early maturing variety, it can be planted in all the intermediate day areas, as well as the long day areas. It will store up to five months. With its tight, thin neck it is easy to cure. Highlander is tolerant to botrytis and downy mildew, the two most common diseases in onions.

Free Shipping! *Alaska and Hawaii customers will be charged $2.00 per bunch over 10 bunches for shipping/handling once the order has been processed.

After 30 bunches, the pricing starts over. In addition to their standard shipping charges both UPS and Fedex charge a 5.2% fuel surcharge, $3.50 residential delivery surcharge, a dimensional weight surcharge, and $3.80 delivery area surcharge on each package, so we must charge each order over 30 as a separate shipment. For example, a 45 bunch order will be priced as a 30 bunch order and a 15 bunch order.

Case lot pricing is for single variety cases. $85.05 for 1 case (save 10%), $80.33 for 2-9 cases (save 15% per case), $75.60 for 10-19 cases (save 20% per case), and $70.88 for 20 or more (save 25% per case). When we import your order, the price of the case lots will be adjusted to reflect the discounted price for single variety cases.

Grew Highlander for first time in 2017. At over 7,000 ft altitude in southern Utah (Monticello, Utah), Highlander performed very well. Matured in time to beat the fall frost and the onion size was as claimed (3 - 4 in). Thank you Dixondale Farms.

My second year with Highlander was as good as the first year. 99 onions from 106 plants and every one between baseball and softball size. Only lost one over winter. Also I plant them in a raised bed. I give Dixondale and Highlander five stars.

Amazing Crop

This year's Highlander crop(2017) was amazing. Not one single plant bolted, and the onions were amazingly uniform. They are always the first to be harvested and provide onions through the fall when I switch to Copra. A great onion.

I was the envy of my gardening community with Highlander. Delicious. These grew wonderfully here on Long Island N.Y.

We grew this for the first time in the summer of 2014. It has now been in storage in a cold root cellar for 6+ months only a very few have started growing. This is a large, mild flavored onion that is a great keeper.Canterbury, NH

The Highlander has solved a big problem for us here in Montana at 5000 ft elevation. That problem with all the rest of our long day onions is that they do not go down and become ready to lift and cure before it gets into the time when we start to have problems with real cool nights and occasional frosts. Our highlanders were lifted, cured, and in the bags when our other 5 varieties were still all upright and green. Large, tasty, and very few bolting. We will definitely be increasing our order next year. For those in the far North or high elevations, definitely give this a try. Very aptly named (High Lander)

We have tried most of the long day onion varieties and Highlander has performed the best of all of them in Wyoming! This is the first onion we have planted that matured before the freezing weather! We harvested the Highlander today - August 20th - the medium day onions are still growing. The Highlander bulbs are consistently large for us (softball size average) and is a pleaser in the kitchen. This onion will be invited back next year for sure! Thanks Dixondale for finding a winner - Highlander is a keeper!!

Began harvesting perfect sized onions on July 4th! Will finish harvesting this week. We had up and down temperatures in May here on Cape Cod and have not experienced any bolting with Highlander. Make sure you keep this in the catalog! Orleans, Ma

Harvested about 60 very nice and consistently large Highlanders on Sunday, July 6. They are earlier that the Red Rivers and Copras which are still growing and doing well. Thanks Dixondale.
