Sweet Spanish type, long day, voluptuously round, yellow globe onion known to perform well in shorter, cooler seasons. Named after an island of solid rock off the coast of England and originally introduced in 1887 by David Murray, gardener for the Marquis of Ailsa. Averages 1-2# (we have pulled 3 pounders!), it is wonderfully sweet, and while not generally thought of as a storage variety, keeps astonishingly well for a sweet onion…at least 3-4 months in proper storage, long after your Walla Wallas have turned to mush.
100-110 days. UO
