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.

Tried the Sterling for the first time in 2016. Great harvest with many 3-4" bulbs. It is now 1 Mar and I am using the last of the harvest which has kept well. Golden, Colorado

I was not going to grow Sterling onions this year as someyears they have not done well. This year I purchased the fertilizer from Dixondale Farms and that may have been the differece. My Sterling onions are probably the largest of all the varieties. I will watch to see how well they keep. I just picked them and have them curing in October in Montana.

In over 35 years of gardening and growing onions, the Sterling onion has been by far our favorite! The uniform, tasty bulbs consistently perform in any weather, grow large yet solid with very few double bulbs. These onions have outclassed any other onions each year we've entered them in competition. Thank you, Dixondale!-HAMMOND, WI

I live in Lynchburg, VA and I havested the Sterling onions on July 15th. They producd well and were uniform in size; about 3 1/2 inches.It is probably the best crop I've had; better than super Star which I raised for the three previous years. We'll see how they store.Lynchburg, Va

spotty sterling
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Aug 13, 2010
Sterling got spotty and apparently eaten in places by something, when other varieties right next to it did fine. Bulb size was small and it looked sickly. This was the only variety that did poorly last year in my garden in Seattle.

I and a friend who combines his order with mine had the same problem as Ken. We both store all our onions in a cool, dry place at temps of a constant 40-45 which would seem to be ideal. I also store Ailsa, which not being a storage type,has kept very well...I am still using Ailsa's that I harvested Aug 10th that are in good cond. although about 1/2 of them have begun to sprout... which is ok for a non-storage variety in March ! I have just started using the 1st editions, which are basically ALL in fine, usable condition(would rate them a 5 )

In my zone 5 area I was very pleased with the size of these onions (Sterling)from this years fall harvest BUT.....having it listed as a storage onion is a joke!!! I grew Copra and Red Zeppelin also and as I checked to see the condition of all three onion varities in my basement this morning,over 50% of the Sterling bulbs were sprouting new growth. I couldn't believe it as the other two varities were just fine. Very disappointed to say the least with Sterling onions. Sturgeon, Wi

Just brought the harvest in. Sterling has been a good performer this year (very wet year). Most are nice size (approximately 3"). Very happy with my plants.

I live in central Iowa and planted Sterling in April and they looked great all year. The bulb size is 4"-5" and are starting to dry down. We had good rainfall all summer and did not have to water. I'm hoping the dry down goes well and am excited to see how well they store.

sterling did poorly

tried one bunch of sterling to see how it would do in eastern MA this year. Planted in late April, very wet cool June and July. Sterling did very poorly. Plants stayed healthy, but 90% ended 1-in diameter.
