haven't been able to find a good onion that is round, so thought I would try these
BECKIE O on May 22, 2019
We have planted Candy onions in the past. We love candy onions. They are easy to grow and store well. When we went to purchase last year from a local nursery they were sold out. Getting a jump on it this year.

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: We pulled the onions as soon as the tops started to wither and brown. Left them to air dry in the open air for several days, making sure to knock off any dried dirt. Stored the onions in a mesh bag but they didn't last long--not because they rotted, but because we like them so much we used them up quickly. This year we plan to plant more.
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.
How far from each other approximately should you plant these?
Hopeautumn10 on May 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine around 4 inches apart but i harvested some throughout the summer. So by fall the ones that i had left were around 6-8 inches which allowed them to grow to a larger size. I hope this helps.

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.
