Due to club root on my allotment i have grown this sprout over the past years due to it's club root resistance. It has never failed me. The sprouts aren't the largest (bonus) and not at all strong, even the children eat them! I can harvest these from December to late March. There's not much between this sprout and Cronus in my view.
Kelsae Onion an Adventure
Wednesday, 4 November 2015 | John
I have been growing the Kelsae Onion now for several years and although this is an exhibition onion I just grow for the table. Any soil type that has reasonable fertility will do - my annually composted veg plot is a heavy soil made lighter by incorporating plenty of organic matter and really works well. I sow seeds as close to New Years day as I can in a heated conservatory and when the weather is ready I plant out in a sunny spot. Keeping the plot weed free and watering well in dry weather is a must if you want to get good results. The onions I grow vary anywhere from 1 to 3 lbs and are mild and sweet with high moisture content. I eat them raw in salads and sandwiches as they are so mild and cook with them - they go sort of creamy due to the high moisture which is really good for stews and curries etc. A truly versatile onion that can keep up to 4 months and gets my neighbours eyes popping when they see just how huge they are.

I bought these last year and made 3 sowings, 1 in autumn direct and protected with glass, 1 in loo rolls in greenhouse in Feb and last direct in March. Every single bean germinated and produced carrier bags full of delicious beans.
