Very delicious and popular sweet onion. The story of the Walla Walla Sweet Onion is said to have begun over a century ago on the Island of Corsica of the west coast of Italy. A French soldier found sweet onion seed and brought it to the Walla Walla valley in Washington State.
Not a storage onion because it is so sweet and juicy. Best eaten fresh; will keep for about 6 weeks in a cool well ventilated location. Also can be chopped and frozen or dehydrated for later use.
(1) In mild winter areas sow seeds in the fall. Leave plants in place throughout the winter for large sweet onions in June or July.
(2) Direct sow in spring as early as the ground can be worked and temperatures are between 65F and 85F. Onions planted directly outdoors in the spring will be smaller.
(3) For bigger onions sow inside 8 to 12 weeks before the last frost and transplant outside when temperatures are between 65F and 85F.
Plant seed in full sun 1/2 deep in loose, well drained soil that has been enriched with compost or general purpose organic garden fertilizer. Raised beds work very well for planting onions. When the plants are 2" high thin 4" to 6" apart.. Water moderately on a regular schedule until stalks lay over on the ground, then discontinue watering. Harvest depends on where you live and how soon you plant, usually July or August when the stalks turn brown and fall over.
Package contains 30-40 seeds.

Safe Seed Pledge:
Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations.
For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats.
We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately people and communities.
