Sampler Pack of Mid-Day Onion Plants
Contains 50% Candy Hybrid, 30% Red Candy Apple, and 20% Super Star Hybrid plants!
Mid-day onions are really just indifferent to day-length -- they don't need the same conditions to ripen that other types do. So if you live in the south and you didn't get your onions in last fall, the mid-days are here to rescue you! And if you live in the north, you've got to try these spectacular new varieties! Here's what you get in this sampler pack: 50% Candy Hybrid - A huge, savory yellow onion with thick flesh and a scrumptious sharp-and-sweet bite. It stores for months! 30% Red Candy Apple - The first of the mid-days, developed years ago and very popular. Bright red bulbs boast a crisp, white interior and superb flavor. 20% Super Star Hybrid - Winner of a 2001 All-America Selection award (the first onion EVER to do so!), this jumbo white can weigh over a pound at maturity! Packed full of thick, mild and sweet ringed flesh, it keeps its skin very nicely, which adds to its storage ability, and is demonstrates great resistance to pink root, a scourge of some other varieties.
