Quality onion sets
I grew the redwing onion last summer in my garden and was overall very satisfied with the plants I received from Stark Bro's!

The only red onion I've had last so long.
These are good onions, not too strong. And they kept pretty well in my basement over the winter. Some started sprouting in January, but I was able to keep using some through March.
