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 'Santero' F1 Hybrid (Spring Planting)
Spring planting. Heat treated.
The answer to gardeners' prayers! Heat treated early main crop, Onion 'Santero' F1 Hybrid is the first onion set with resistance to downy mildew, a potentially disastrous fungal foliage disease. This 'Rijnsburger' type onion produces copper brown, oval-to-round bulbs with medium skin thickness. Yields are similar in quality and quantity to other F1 maincrop varieties currently available, and bulbs have great storage potential. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6").
Companion planting: Try growing onions with mint to confuse and deter onion fly.
