Long-day type--Introduced about 1793, this old onion is now hard to find. It is also called Brown Spanish by French seed house Vilmorin; in 1885 they said, "The winter supply of Paris and of a great part of Europe consists chiefly of this variety, which may be often seen hanging up in dwelling-houses in long hanks formed by interlacing and plaiting the withered leaves together." The roots are flattened and 3-4 inches across; the skin is a brownish yellow and the flesh is flavorful. This antique is known for its keeping qualities that made it a standard in Europe for over 200 years.

Review:

Sorry I am updating my last review since they germinated and give bakercreek credit for having great seed with honest integrity that backs their products of quality!Very fast delivery even thou first small flat was almost a disastaer the 2nd one I planted from the same exact seeds gave me 100% germination,they are very healthy plants not as stocky as the yellow of parma but their strong point seems to be that they are very cold hardy cause even thou I have them near my flourecent light I have them very near a single pai window in my back room no heat up stairs except that that rises from the first floors and that is pretty good cause here in Ct. this year between Jan & Feb it has been 10 below to 30 degrees outside and they are right near the window after I let them get I tiny bit bigger I adapted them to this condition and they are doing extremely well!

Review:

I'm new to growing onions but Jaune Paille stands out because of its excellent flavor and it performed superbly in the garden with minimal care. I put them in large paper bags in an unheated area under the stairs and they've kept beautifully for months now. Reordering them again for certain.

Review:

I live in the PNW Washington. Sowed these seeds indoors March, transplanted outdoors April 28th. Harvested late August. As of May the following year we still have firm onions in storage that's 7 months from harvest! Excellent sweet taste when fried or roasted. I will definitely buy this variety again.

Review:

Last year I grew 5 different kinds of long day onions. These were one of 2 that kept all winter. Their flavor is mild but not sweet. They are already in the garden for this year !!!
