What are the pros? Stores well

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!

I love Yellow of Parmas
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? size, storage, flavor, beauty

What are the cons? none

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!
