Product Description

Spanish Globe onions are known for their sweet and mild flavor, as well as their crisp, firm flesh. Add slices to soups and stews, or dice into tiny cubes for pico de gallo. The yellowish, papery skin protects the flesh beneath so that they'll store in a cool, dry place for up to several months! It's a "long day" onion, meaning it grows best and begins forming bulbs when daylight lasts 14-16 hours. If you've run out of room in your garden for these delicious onions, try growing Spanish Globe Sets in our unique Grow Tubs. 85 days to maturity.
