What are the pros? seed germ, seedling vigor,easy
What are the cons? so hard to find seed, not sets
Here is a medium size extremely long storing delicious yellow onion. Strong seed germination rates on 2 and 3 yr. old seeds. Start indoors, 2 months later planted in full sun alkaline clay/loam soil with pulled weeds and clipped quack grass for mulch. Every year same results. Gang-buster growth on the tops, to about late July, then the tops seem to pre-maturely die down about 6 weeks ahead of all the other varieties. I notice the very thin necks and nasty ugly spotted foliage on them, but they do continue bulb growth until pulled out at harvest time in mid september here, along with all the other onions in the patch. After the cure period on the ground in the sun, or in the drying shed, I sack them up in panty hose and hang them up in the utility room with the long storing varieties. Nice to have them along with copra, red wing, yellow of parma, and what remains of Southport Red Globes. Some years I run out of stuttgarter before the following June because they are eaten up by then.
