Forget those limp, overpriced green onions at the supermarket — you can grow your own in just 2 months from seed, practically any time of year! Parade is a very heavy-yielding, attractive, super-healthy green onion, with a crisp bite you’ll find yourself craving!
This onion redefines “vigor.” From a single planting you’ll get plenty of straight, waxy, picture-perfect dark green stems. Pick them when they’re about a foot to 16 inches tall for best flavor. Parade is very tolerant of bulbing, so you needn’t rush to harvest it at once, but successive plantings every 2 weeks work best.
Like most onions, Parade thrives in normal to sandy soil exposed to full sun. Keep the soil well-drained and moist. If you live in a warm climate, spring, fall, and possibly even winter are your best crop times; farther north, you can enjoy onions all summer long! No kitchen garden should be without this charmer, so grow Parade this season and see what all the flap is about!
