Candy has taken American gardens by storm! No matter where you live, you can grow this huge, savory yellow onion, with thick, succulent flesh and a delicious flavor both sharp and sweet. Candy stores for months — if you can resist them that long, that is.
Candy is a revolutionary new type of onion. Neither a long-day (Northern) nor short-day (Southern) variety, Candy is a “mid-day” or day-neutral variety. This means that it can be grown just about anywhere from the far north to the deep south. And it’s earlier, larger, and more flavorful than its long- and short-day varieties. By combining the best of both in terms of flavor, holding ability, and earliness, Candy is unsurpassed for performance and taste.
Start seedlings indoors 8 weeks before expected transplant into the garden. Space plants 2 to 3 inches apart in the garden. For mature bulbs, wait until the tops fall over after the growing season. Then dig up the bulbs, cure for 3 weeks, and store in a cool, dry place. Pkt is 200 seeds, which sows about 30 feet of row.
