Transplant to a 2-inch depth at about 4-6 inches apart. Clip the tops to 3 inches.

Culinary Uses

The Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion is similar to what you would buy as an everyday sweet onion in the grocery store. These onions go great in any recipe.

Harvesting Crops

Harvest by pulling bulbs out of ground when the tops are brown and dry.

Harvesting Seed

Allow Onion to fully mature. Allow the stalks to turn brown and dry before clipping a few inches below the head. Store heads in a paper bag for several weeks. Shake the bag vigorously to help separate seeds.

Remove seeds and store properly until next growing season.
