Sweetest and best onion I have ever eaten. Cannot be beaten for raw on hamburgers. There are no tears when cutting and the flavor is so mild that it does not over power anything. Here it is, mid February and they are still firm and delicious. Great Keepers.

I decided to plant onions for the first time this year, and I was dismayed when we had one of the wettest springs on record. These onions tolerated the all of the rain and standing water - I didn't lose a single plant. The onions are wonderful and are storing very well.

The Candy Hybrid Onion is the best onion I have ever had. Good on sandwiches, excellent in chili, and excellent in other dishes. This onion keeps well during the winter as well. I gave several to relatives last year and got requests this year to order plants for them. The only regret is I got requests to order additional plants and currently none are available. Once again, best onion I have ever eaten.
Excellent Onion

We planted these onions last season, and couldn't have been happier with them. They grew fantastic, even in our hot dry climate. They are softball size, and taste great. It's almost February, and I still have several onions left from last year. I cooked with some last night, and you couldn't tell they had been hanging in the closet for many months. Highly recommend, and will definitely order again!

I've had wonderful success two years in a row with these! Bunches and bunches of softball-size, sweet onions that are excellent keepers! We still had onions right up to Christmas last year! Love 'em!

So far these are growing great. I was a little concerned when they first arrived, as they all looked about ready to croke. Yet to my suprise they woke back up and are growing great. I can't wait for harvesting time!
