Onion sets are small bulbs less than 1" in diameter. Sets are usually planted in the early spring to produce green (salad) onions or big onions. Nurseries and garden centers begin selling onion sets in the very early spring.
Yellow Rock & Stuttgart. These two yellow varieties are our most popular and will yield good-sized onions with excellent storage characteristics. These are great cooking onions and will have a sweet taste once prepared in your favorite recipes.
Australian Brown. Our newest variety is the very rare Australian Brown, which was imported from Australia in 1897. This brown Spanish onion is distinct from all others - it is wonderfully solid and keeps exceptionally long. This set will produce a round, medium size onion with a white, mild flesh and a thick, deep amber-brown skin.
White Ebenezer. Excellent for growing green onions or salad onions, and popular in Oriental and Mexican recipes. Plant deeply to produce a long, succulent white stem.
Red Wethersfield "Improved". Our own selection of this famous variety has a dark burgundy skin and also has internal red color. Grow for mild, good-sized onions that are excellent in salads.
For home gardeners, we suggest the following for planting onion sets:
Our most delicate and smallest onion
