What are the cons? none

Review:

Planted them in the Adirondack mountains where the season is short and cool. They received about six to eight hours of direct morning and midday sunlight. They did not grow large, but were consistent in size. Perfect size to put whole in stews, enough for one serving (fried with eggs). Tops fell over by themselves, just in time for preparation for drying. Storage was phenomenal. Stored them in card board boxes against a outer, frosted (literally) kitchen wall. Used the last onions from the previous year in June. It was just as fresh and lovely as when I put it up for the winter.

Review:

These onions are the biggest I have ever grown. They do like a little organic fertilizer a few times, I grew some with and some without and the fed row grew twice as big. They cure nicely, looks like we will have a great storage onion if we don't eat them all too fast, they are so good! One pack of seeds grew about 20 pounds of cured onions, maybe more...I keep giving them away to my German friends.

Review:

I am very proud having started these onions by seed inside in February here in Southern NE. While I've never grown any others, these onions produced nice bulbs in July, and then flopped over pretty soon. I thought they were a bit small then and following advice on the net, I pulled them. However, I should have followed the advice from my aunt in Germany, who said leave them in the ground until the tops are completely dry. I did this with the final bunch, and of course they continued to increase in size as the tops withered in the ground. Something I like about growing onions and will do it again.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? soft neck

Review:

I had planted Red Wethersfield, Stuttgarter, Copra and Brown Australian side by side with the same growing conditions. The Stuttgarter had a much smaller harvested size than the other three onions mentioned. The onion had a very soft neck that was the first to flop over. I would not recommend this onion.
