In this range you'll find spring-planting, autumn-planting and heat-treated varieties. Spring-planting varieties will give you a crop during June and July and autumn-planting varieties will be ready a few weeks earlier. Spring is such a busy time and planting onions and garlic in the autumn to overwinter gives you one less job to in spring! Heat-treated onions are less likely to bolt (run to seed) on planting, which occurs particularly in red varieties.
Onion 'Red Arrow' (Spring Planting)
Spring planting. Heat treated.
Onion 'Red Arrow' comes from specific British breeding of early red onions and replaces Onion 'Red Emperor'. With rosy red skins and pink tinged flesh, this early variety makes a colourful contribution to many culinary dishes. These heat treated onion sets will start to crop from late July. Onion 'Red Arrow' resists bolting and will store well for up to 8 weeks after harvesting. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6").
Companion planting: Try growing onions with mint to confuse and deter onion fly.
