What are the pros? Aroma, Flavor, Easy to grow
What are the cons? Slow to Germinate
Excellent onion with great flavor and little maintenance required. Very simple grow by just general sowing in about 4-5 inches of loose soil. Potting mix works well. Amend soil with bone meal or similar phosphorus source once a month until the last month of growth. 1-14-1 is the ratio I provided constantly and grew these in a short day region of texas. They all grew to 4 inch bulbs two weeks before the 110 day mark.
As they grow thin out and use those as regular "green onions". 4 weeks before harvest date they will start turning purple. They are very sweet yet very potent. They also have an excellent aroma to them raw, unlike regular onions. Overall the flavor makes up for its size. One 4 inch bulb was just as potent as my store bought organic giant white onions, tears and all.
