What are the pros? Good flavor
What are the cons? Bolts easily; short storage
Late October '16 I planted Red Creole and Australian Brown, (intermediate day) as the first bulbing onions I ever grew here in east central Georgia. Great germination on both and both produced large, beautiful onions. However an early warm spell followed by a hard cold spell, then more warmth triggered bolting in the Red Creoles. The Australian Browns weren't affected.
This past October I planted the same two and we went through the same early warm-hard cold-warm again sequence this spring. Today I saw the Red Creoles are starting to bolt even earlier than last year. I'm thinking intermediates do better with these early temp swings so I won't be planting Red Creole or any other short day variety this fall. Just the Australian Brown and maybe another intermediate variety.
