Wethersfield Red Onion

Long day. This variety dates to the 1700s. Popular from New York to Bermuda, and it brought much wealth to the onion growers of New England, as well as to the Yankee traders who sold ship-loads of it. The 1856 Comstock-Ferre 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, deep blood-red onion of renowned quality. A true piece of horticultural Americana that deserves to be more widely grown.

Review:

I grew these onions last season. I am in Ag zone 6B so my season is pretty short. They were difficult to germinate, more so than the other variety I grow (Dakota Tears) . I started them int he greenhouse in Oct and transplanted them into the garden in early May. They finally matured near the end of September so took a long time for my area. They were huge, the size of softballs and well worth the trouble as I am still using these onions and it's July of the next year. For short season areas, these must be started in the fall.

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.
