|Average Rating (2 Reviews): |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.

Have only been growing this variety for the last 3 years, they grow very large but do not lack flavour. Achieved a 3lb specimen this year, this variety is excellent for growing on heavier soils.
