White Onions (Allium cepa 'White') are full of flavor and have a wide range of versatile culinary uses. These Onions are prized for their zesty flavor and easy-to-grow nature. Because they store well, you can enjoy White Snowball Onions for months after harvest.

These onions have white flesh with a thin skin. They can grow as large or can be harvested before reaching full size, and before they're ready for harvest, the greens and flowers can be used as a flavorful and colorful garnish!

White Onions contain antioxidants and compounds that can lower heart disease risk and protect against blood clots. They are space-saving features to container gardens, kitchen and veggie gardens, and herb borders! Like their Allium family members, their blooms attract pollinators and support bees!

Planting and Application:

White Onions make an excellent addition to many dishes raw or cooked, sauteed or fresh. They're often used for fajita veggies and in other Mexican dishes. They pair well with sauteed garlic for savory dishes, like omelets, giving these dishes a hint of sweetness for added depth of flavor. Enjoy sliced White Onions on your salads and sandwiches!

White Onions are ready for harvest as soon as their foliage withers. Pull the plants from the ground and allow them to sit on top of the soil for a few days to dry the roots. Tie the tops together to store them. They will store for several months in a cool, dry place like a basement or garage.
