We are happy to announce that the first seeds have sprouted at Red Granite Farm. Steve is trying something new this year and started onions from seed. A total experiment that only time will tell if it proves to be the way to go. If all “grows as planted,” we should have 4 varieties of onions available this year.
- Ailsa Craig—A huge, mild Spanish onion with a unique flavor. Bulbs said to average 5lbs, can you imagine?!!
- Candy—A large jumbo Spanish with a golden yellow skin with a sweet mild white flesh.
- Mercury—A large attractive round red globe with great interior and exterior color. Long storage life and sure to brighten any salad!
- Countach— Another red onion with jumbo size and dark red color. Should store 4–6 months.
