Yellow Potato Onion (Hill, Mother, or Pregnant Onion) 8 oz.

Retail Price: $11.95

Ships in fall. [A 1982 SESE reintroduction of an heirloom strain dating prior to 1790.] Produces onions up to 4" in diameter under good conditions, and 3" 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. Starter Package: 8 oz. (8-12 bulbs, depending on crop.)

Ships September - November, to northern-most areas first. Shipping surcharges apply - $2 for one fall item, $4 total for any two or more fall shipped items. We cannot ship bulbs outside the U.S.
