Description

A real favourite. Heavy cropping, they produce large, well flavoured yellow to light brown globes. Excellent keeping qualities.

Outdoors: Sow thinly March-April, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-dug, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin plants to 23cm (9″) apart. Transplant thinnings or use in salads. Or sow indoors, January-April, for larger bulbs, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of seed compost. Water well and maintain a temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F). Keep moist. Transplant, 5cm (2”) apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 23cm (9″) apart, during April-May. Harvest: August-September.

Tip: Encourage ripening by gently turning down the foliage as it starts to turn yellow. Allow to dry before storing in a cool, dry room.
