  1. Scallion, 'Ishikura Long Winter'

    Scallion, 'Ishikura Long Winter'

    (Allium fistulosum) Ishikura Winter is a classic Japanese winter hardy bunching onion, with long white stalks and sturdy upright dark green leaves. Of a handful of winter varieties we trialed recently, this was our favorite. Lovely diced as a garnish or left whole and roasted,  a useful allium for the kitchen garden. We direct sow them with a seeder and have harvested them in every month of the year.

  2. eds red

    Shallot, 'Ed's Red'

    We were really happy to find this OP shallot a few years back. We were even happier after harvesting the large tasty bulbs and happier still eating them the following June, a full 10 months later. That’s a lot of happiness! Red skinned, dutch-style shallots are on the larger side and very productive. While we find the dutches to be somewhere between storage onions and the famed French grey shallots in flavor, they really put both to shame in storability. Kept in cool dry conditions we’ve still been eating the previous year’s crop when it was time to start harvesting the new one.

  3. new york early

    Storage Onion, 'New York Early'

    Originally selected from “Early Yellow Globe” by commercial onion growers in NY, New York Early is a dependable yellow storage variety. Medium sized, uniform, tight bulbs provide excellent storage into spring. Commercial growers note: with ubiquitous hybrid Copra scheduled to be phased out in the next couple years, now is the time to start trying out replacements. NY Early is a great starting place  scoring excellently in duplicated northeast & northwest trials. Superior in flavor to Copra if a hair shorter storage.

  4. Storage Onion, 'Rijnsburg 5'

    Storage Onion, 'Rijnsburg 5'

    With several storage onions we grow and love already, we weren’t sure we needed another in our catalog, but our 2014 crop of Rijnsburg so impressed us, we ended up saving the best bulbs from the harvest and producing seed. Dutch bred, and reasonably well known in Europe, it is a very productive large round globe type with gorgeous bronze wrappers, and excellent flavor. Firm yellow bulbs stored without temperature control into June for us without sprouting. Strong leaf growth is well suited to organic systems and mechanical cultivation.

  5. rosa di milano

    Storage Onion, 'Rossa di Milano'

    *Heirloom*
    This has been our absolute favorite storage red for years. From Northern Italy comes this unusually shaped flat-topped onion with very attractive bronze-red skin. A first rate OP storage onion that is medium sized, very productive, and uniform. In a 2014 storage onion trial done by the Organic Seed Alliance, under heavy disease pressure Rosa showed excellent horizontal resistance to downy mildew. Stores easily until spring. Always tastes delicious!

  6. Stuttgarter

    Storage Onion, 'Stuttgarter Riesen'

    If you’ve ever grown onions from Dutch sets before, chances are you’ve already grown Stuttgarter. For many years it has been the industry standard for set production. The somewhat flattened, medium sized bulbs have a very attractive glossy bronze skin and excellent storing firm flesh. In a 2014 storage onion taste trial put on by the Culinary Breeding Network, it generated some of the most praise from Portland area chefs and growers of the 15 or so varieties tasted.

  7. Sweet Onion, 'Ailsa Craig'

    Sweet Onion, 'Ailsa Craig'

    *Heirloom*
    We’re happy to have our all time favorite sweet onion back in the catalog. 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 for extended storage, keeps astonishingly well for a sweet onion…at least 2-3 months in proper storage, long after your Walla Wallas have turned to mush.

  8. Sweet Onion, 'Red Long of Tropea'

    Sweet Onion, 'Red Long of Tropea'

    *Heirloom*
    Also known as “torpedo” on account of their elongated shape, Red Long is a superb old variety from Calabria in Mediterranean Southern Italy, a region famous for its sweet onions. We’ve been growing these for years and bunched fresh at market, they earned a loyal following amongst our customers. Very unique and beautiful, they are a deep wine red color and very sweet. Perfect for panzanella, our favorite summer salad. Not keepers but last about 5-6 months, longer than most sweets. Dramatic specialty for markets.

  9. Sweet Onion, 'Siskiyou Sweet'

    Sweet Onion, 'Siskiyou Sweet'

    *Heirloom*
    This is southern Oregon grower Don Tipping’s selection of the classic Walla Walla Sweet onion, the most famous of the northern adapted sweets. Very large slightly flattened bulbs are juicy, mild and very sweet. We have heard tales of people eating these like apples. Original seed was brought from the island of Corsica off the west coast of Italy to WA by French soldier Peter Pieri around the turn of the 20th century. Not a keeper. Long day.
