  1. 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.
    100-110 days. UO

    Packet: 100 seeds

     


    Starting at: $3.50

  2. 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.
    90 days. UO

    Packet: 100 seeds

    Starting at: $3.50

  3. 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.
    110-120 days. DT
