Yellow Onion (Allium cepa) are easy-to-grow garden standards that will add loads of flavor to your recipes! Growing to several inches in diameter and is considered a medium-to-large globe variety. Yellow Onion has white to yellow flesh and brownish-yellow skins.

Its well-rounded flavor and ability to transform from having a bite to being mellow and sweet make it one of the most popular varieties in grocery stores. Yellow Onions are also adored by gardeners because they resist going to seed when the weather gets warmer.

Maturing around 100 days, Yellow Onions retain their juice and stores for several months and have firm skin that protects them long after harvest. The taste is rich and lingers on the palate but can vary depending on the growing conditions. They store well. Hang to dry and once dry they will store well most of the winter, up to six months.

Planting and Application:

These yellow onions offer an excellent, clean flavor that is spicy when used raw. There's no better Onion to have sliced raw on a burger or as a spicy bite in a salad. This variety is an excellent cultivar to use as green onions as well as letting them grow into Onions for storage. Some like to plant in the fall for a short-season Green Onion.

Plant these space-saving edible bulbs in your Kitchen garden for easy access to flavorful cooking and garnish - because not only are the bulbs edible, but also the leaves, scapes, and flowers too! Tuck in groupings or in rows throughout Herb gardens and are no-brainers for the Veggie garden too! Even container gardeners can grow Garlic in their mixed planters and in containers too!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant Yellow Onions in full sun in the spring to take advantage of the cool weather leaving with about 4-6 inches between. Water them well to help them establish and as needed to keep the plants most actively growing right up until late spring or early summer.

Once their foliage turns brown, it's time to harvest. Pull or spade the onions from the ground turning them upside down and let them sit in the sun for a few days to let the roots dry before gathering the tops and hanging them to dry in a dry garage or basement where they can be used for months.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderately Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • Plant in Fall - Harvest in Spring/Summer
  • Good Storage Life
  • Low Maintenance & Easy to Grow
