Yellow Granex Hybrid 33 Onion Seeds



This is a short-day (Southern) type, planted in fall for early summer harvest

Days to Maturity: 125

This is the same sweet yellow onion that's famously grown in Vidalia, Georgia, and just one bite tells you why it's the most popular sweet onion in America. Not only is this short-day type nice and mild, it actually has a sugary flavor you'll love. And even though it's a sweet type, it stores remarkably well. You just can't go wrong with easy-to-grow, crowd-pleasing sweet onion.

This sweet Georgia onion is a bit flattish, with flimsy papery wrapping and light-yellow, thick flesh. It is equally well suited for cooking or using raw, and is a very reliable garden performer. Grow onions just like they do in Vidalia, Georgia yourself (who wants to pay those fancy supermarket and roadside stand prices) and find out just what all the fuss is about.

Yellow Granex is called a "short-day" onion because it matures during the short days of fall, winter, and early spring, and is suited for warm climates, where winter is mild. If you live further north, try "long-day" varieties such as Walla Walla Sweet.

Start seed indoors in fall for early summer harvest in the south. Begin them in flats 8 weeks before expected transplant into the garden. Space seedlings 2 to 3 inches apart in the garden. 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.

Granex are always delightful

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have been planting Park Seed's Granex onion seeds for 4 years now and they are always good germinators, healthy plants, and great onions. I plant the seeds in early November (I'm in Los Angeles), and can start harvesting good-sized flat globes by late April through June. I store the dozens of them in my shed as it is usually dry, and they don't mind the heat of summer either. They are great raw, and also make excellent onion rings.
