Big Daddy Hybrid Onion Plants
Giant 5-inch Globes!
Big Daddy (also known as Cannonball) is a favorite among professional growers and home gardeners alike. It's simply the whole package: a long-day that matures quickly, a super-large yellow (Spanish) onion with tightly-packed, slightly pungent flavor; a disease-resistant and bolt-tolerant plant that you can even set out late and not worry about harvesting in time. And once you have harvested, the onions store for 4 to 6 months!
Big Daddy reaches up to 5 inches in diameter, with round, well-wrapped globes of great eating. It makes terrific onion rings, and holds up well in soups and stews. But it's also terrific raw, with that pungent bite that yellow onion lovers crave!
These plants are super-easy to grow, too. They won't bolt if the weather turns unseasonably warm, and they resist most diseases effortlessly. All they really need is enough room to grow their giant globes!
Space plants 6 inches apart in the garden. If you want crisp, tender green onions, harvest the bulbs just after the swelling begins. For mature bulbs, wait until the tops fall over after the growing season. Then dig up the bulbs, cure for 3 weeks, and store in a cool, dry place. Bunch of 60 plants.
