Red Creole
  • Dark red, globe shape, pungent, open pollinated
  • Size Potential: 3-4"
  • Storage Potential: Approximately 6-7 months
  • Days to Harvest: 110

Red Creole is the best short day storage onion! This onion has a spicy, Cajun type flavor and can be added to any dish for a bolder experience. This onion is small to medium in size with pungent red-purple flesh and tolerant to disease with very little bolt resistance, so planting it a bit later will decrease the number of bulbs that bolt.. Well adapted to all short day growing areas. At maturity, you will find yourself with a dark-red, globe-shaped, pungent onion about 3-4 inches in diameter. Once planted by transplant, they take about 110 days until harvest and then can be stored for approximately 6-7 months. Our customers have been asking for a short day storage variety and this is one that will work for you in that category.

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.

About 60% have bolted and the bulbs were small too. Could have been hot cold hot weather stress. Didnt underwater or overfertilze.

I planted the sampler and it seems the Red Creole has bolted in several of the plants when we had a cold spurt, where the others have not.

These onions did very well for me considering the deer trampled them getting to other goodies in the garden. I didn't get the 3-4 inch size, because the necks were broken on most right when they started to bulb. They are holding well. I pulled in late May early June. The flavor is hot, but mellows well when cooked still keeping a good onion flavor.

Planting these again!

It was a funny year for onions here in Florida, lots of bolting and doubling and I didn't get the size I was shooting for but these Red Creoles performed very well and it looks like they're going to keep better than any short day onion I have ever planted. The flavor is great for any use. I'll plant twice as many next year!Clermont, Fl

I bought the sampler and the yellow and white grew wonderfully, as usual. This red was horrible. The ones that did take, grew only to golf ball size. I garden in the high desert. I will stick with the yellow and white in the future. Wilcox, AZ

Worth trying again

I planted a bunch of Red Creole onions here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast at the end of January and am a little disappointed. We had perfect weather temperature wise, but bad thunderstorms with heavy wind blew a lot of them down on two occasions. This almost certainly damaged many of the necks and caused early maturity of those plants. I also planted them too far apart, not realizing that this would encourage doubling. It is late April and I am harvesting an abundance of very tasty small to medium sized onions. Next year I'll be planting them tighter and hoping for fewer doubles and larger bulbs.
