Wethersfield Red Onion

This onion is legendary in Conneticut's "most ancient town" and traces its development to the 1700's. Today it is celebrated as an icon and logo of Wethersfield. We may have been the first company to sell seeds for it commercially, but before we offered it, this onion was already popular from New York to Bermuda and brought much wealth to the onion growers of the town. Our 1856 catalog states, "It is the kind mostly grown at Wethersfield. It grows to large size, deep red, thick, approaching to round shape, fine-grained, pleasant flavored, and very productive. It ripens in September, and keeps well." It is a slightly flattened onion of renowned quality and is sure to become a tradition in your garden this year.

What are the pros? tasty beau that stores well

What are the cons? none

Review:

I'm an amateur gardener for 10 years but new to growing onions. These were easy to grow though a little small due to lack of weeding on my part. However, I put them in a bag in a cool dark area in September and forgot about them until I rediscovered them on Feb 20. They stored beautifully and are just delicious. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for an attractive, small to medium sized red onion to enjoy months after the growing season is but a faint memory.
