Great onion!
Alison Collin from CA wrote on August 01, 2015

Planted seed in the house in late January. Germination excellent. Grew robustly and bulbed up beautifully even in our high desert garden in the middle of California. Began to die down end July. Most bulbs close to 1lb. and many much bigger. My only concerns are that the necks are very thick and may not dry completely, and the skins are rather thin so I am not sure how they will store.

Candy onions they are so sweet, the gophers ate all of them
Candy Anderson from CA wrote on March 01, 2015

Germ was excellent, Because my name is Candy I was looking forward to selling these on my stand. However, the gophers ate all of them, one every day til there was none.We did however get a few, and they were excellent. I will grow again this year.

Candy Hybrid

BIG(14 oz-no tops) onions and lots of them!!! Got lots of compliments from my friends on how well these did here in KY. Tremendous germination rates. Started seeds Feb 1 and planted March 10. Best of all, they're great on the table. Soups, stews, sandwiches, I've really enjoyed their sweet flavor. Growing again next year.

Great onion, high success rate with the seeds and transplants
Gomo Gardens from TX wrote on August 11, 2014

I bought this seed years ago and said nothing ventured nothing gained last year. Since the seed was easily 5 yrs old my germination rate was excellent. When transplanted properly this is my go to onion in Hill Country TX. When cured properly the onion will last a minimum of 3 months. The onion has a nice bite when used fresh. Cooked it is sweet. My sister in law loves these to use as scallions and doesn't share her crop with the neighbors. This onion will bolt if it doesn't receive an even amount of water regularly or I get a few days of hot weather in the middle of winter. I'm in south central TX so it does happen. Depending on the weather conditions the onion will be about the size of a tennis ball or as large as a softball. The flavor remains fairly consistent with the sizes, but the larger the bulb is milder. When I've had issues with bolting and can't use the onions as fresh, I dehydrate or chop and freeze. I haven't had problems with taste deteriorating. I used window boxes to germinate
