SOW: For the finest onions, seed directly outdoors in full sun to partial shade and well drained soil as soon as the ground can be worked in Spring Planting depth 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Space rows 12 inches apart. Scatter seed in the row at the rate of 3 seeds per inch.
START INDOORS: Seed can be started indoors 8-10 weeks before transplanting outdoors. When transplanting, clip plants to three inches and plant 2 inches deep
THIN: When seedlings are 3 inches high, thin to stand 2 to 3 inches apart.
HARVEST young plants in 60 days or up to 120 days for mature plants.
SUGGESTIONS: Fertile, moist soil enriched with compost is best for onion production. Onions ward off many insect pests around lettuce, cabbage and carrots. Use thinnings as green onions.
SECOND CROP: Sow again in Fall for a second crop. If planted in the fall provide protection where winters are severe.
Tokyo Long White (Bunching)
Slightly pungent, long white shanks with stiff blue-green tops. Resistant to hot weather and also fairly cold tolerant, but not recommended for over-wintering. Good Pink Root tolerance as well as smut, Botrytis leaf blight, and thrips. Onions from seed are generally better quality than set-grown onions.
