(Hill Onion, Mother Onion, or Pregnant Onions) Ships in fall 2017.
(Allium cepa var. aggregatum
) [In 1982 SESE reintroduced an heirloom strain dating prior to 1790.]
Produces onions up to 4 in. in diameter under good conditions, and 3 in. in diameter under average conditions. Flavorful, yet not strong. This has always been a popular variety with our customers. The Yellow Potato onion has good drought resistance, pink root resistance, and is widely adapted for different growing regions, except Florida and southern Texas. Especially valued for the keeping quality of the small and medium-sized bulbs, which keep 8-12 months under good conditions. We’ve kept small bulbs up to 18 months under ideal conditions. Some old-timers grow this heirloom onion exclusively because it provides all the onions they ever need. Comes with our Garlic and Onion Growing Guide
