They are a very mild onion. Not so sweet that you don't know it's there yet not so over powering that it's all you taste. They store pretty well also

I have planted these for two years. Excellent onion. Easy to grow, produces large tasty onions. I put them in the freezer and store some in the panty. They usually last until March or April in the pantry.

how well do Candy Hybrid onions store and how should you store them ?
David h on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I store mine in a cold room in our basement. They store very well!! They keep until time to get new one from the garden.
Do you leave tops on or cut them off when storing?
Wayne J on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: After the tops were dry, I cut them off for storage. I kept them in a crate my husband made out of wood and hardware cloth.
how to store?
Wayne J on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: After the onion tops have fallen over I harvest them.
I place the on a sheet, in a single layer, on my covered porch where they gets lots of air but are not in the direct sunlight. Don't crowd them, leave some space . Once the tops have dried completely I cut the tops and store in our basement.

Great tasting sweet onion
I order these onion plants every year. I have had better success with these onions compared to growing Walla Walla onions as the candy seem to be more resistant to diseases. I usually plant them in early March as soon as they arrive(they are very cold tolerant) and they get to be a good size by July. Though they are pricy the onions are a good value. The bunches include many more onions than stated and at 6" apart I can grow about 40 feet of row per bunch.
