Long day. Large, golden onions are oblong-globe shaped. This late onion makes an excellent keeper; a rare and hard-to-find Italian variety.

What are the pros? Flavor. Size. Storage.

What are the cons? I never plant enough???

Review:

I probably eat this variety every day. No, really! The rich flavor, chopped raw onto beans, tamales, folded into omelets, saut?ed with potatoes, or carrots, cooked into spaghetti sauces, or grilled with steak and mushrooms...that flavor is unique to the Yellow of Parma! I have to practically hide this onion from family and friends if I want to have any until the next crop is ready. So the germination rate is very good, the leaves grow HUGE in the garden in my alkaline and very mineral soil, and the finished bulb is only smaller than an Ailsa Craig. This is the largest storage onion I grow. And the color is so golden amber and shining after curing. Perfect still life portrait subject! I really, really love this onion. This spring I discovered some bulbs left in the onion patch are growing. After twenty degrees below zero cold many weeks this past winter. I am truly amazed. I have grown this onion for 5 years now and will always grow it as long as I can garden, Then my grandchildren can

What are the pros? Stores well

What are the cons? Taste could be a bit better

Review:

I have grown these for a three years running and it is a keeper. I have experimented with others, such as Ailsa Craig and assorted white onions, and this has the huge advantage of keeping well after it is picked (providing you dry it well). I have found that it really does need full sun, and if there is even partial shade it will only grow a little bit bigger than the size of a golf ball. My only complaint, and the reason I keep trying out other onions as well, is that the flavor is pretty basic. It will beat the stuff you find in grocery stores, but if you are looking for a richer onion taste then it pays to have some other varieties that may not store as well. It is Jan and the ones I stored for winter are still doing great.

Review:

In the spring of 2015, we had moved and were setting up new garden boxes. These were my first try at growing storage unions for our winter root cellar. They germinated great in my winter sowing jugs and I only transplanted a couple 6 foot rows due to limited garden capacity. They grew great and ended up being nice and uniform, medium size bulbs with a nice strong onion flavor and they stored really well. We ate the last onion in February and it looked like I had just pulled if from the garden. Spring of 2016, we planted a whole 6 x 6 box (9 to a square) of these onions, harvested in September and I still have baskets of them in the root cellar for the rest of the winter!

Review:

I grew Yellow of Parma, last summer, and was very pleased. They were hearty and grew well, and I loved their old timey beauty. They don't waste time drying after harvest, which I appreciate, and they close off nicely. They've stored well so far, in covered cardboard boxes in the pantry, and it's February now, and this has been a warm winter. We love their hot flavor and they're nice to cook with. I even like the way they feel..just reminds me of the old days somehow. I'll be growing them again this spring. Highly recommend!
