I always used to grow spring planted onions but love these over wintering ones as it is great to be ahead if next years crop. I would never be without them and have always had a good from of large juicy onions.
I have planted this variety in Scotland for several years now with great results. This last winter was mild and the results were even better with large onions which dried well and we are only halfway through the June crop. My wife loves to use them cooking and says they are full of flavour, soft and ' melt' into the food. Wonderful
