Long day. One of the most popular sweet Vidaliatype onions! Light brown skin and very mild, juicy, sweet white flesh. Extra large Spanish type that can reach 5-6" in diameter and 2 lb! Cold hardy. Perfect for the north, northwest regions and as a winter crop in the south. Great for slicing! NOT for long term storage!
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
