Bonnie Plants Candy Onions, THE most popular sweet onion, were created for jumbo size, sweet flavor, and recipe versatility.  Candy onions are day-neutral meaning they grow in almost any region, regardless of daylight hours.   Candy onions are crisp with a slightly sweet flavor when raw, and when cooked, they become tender with a mild, pleasant flavor.

    • Type Day-neutral
    • Bulb size 1 to 2 pound
    • Matures 100 days
    • Plant spacing 6 inches apart
    • Plant size Up to 6-inch bulbs, 2-foot topsThis onion is well adapted throughout the country. Not affected by day length, it is called a day-neutral variety and will form bulbs in the North or South. The jumbo, globe-shaped bulbs are sweet and mild with lasting quality and good flavor.

Growing onions is simple: If you can poke a hole into the ground, you can grow an onion from a little plant.  Sold as little seedlings in bare-root bundles; each plant will start growing within days after you plant. If you can’t plant your onions right away, remove their bindings and place them in a bucket with 2 inches of moist soil in the bottom. Keep them in a cool, bright place but out of direct sun until you are ready to plant. A sunny basement is ideal.

Quick Guide to Growing Onions

  • Plant onions in early spring once the ground is workable. In-ground gardens and raised beds are both excellent options for growing onions.
  • Space onion plants 6 inches apart in rows that are 12 inches apart. Grow them in a sunny spot that has fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.8.
  • Improve your native soil by mixing in several inches of aged compost or other rich organic matter.
  • Onions aren’t great at taking up water, so it’s important to keep soil moist so their shallow roots can drink up. Water whenever the top inch of soil becomes dry.
  • For best results, keep your growing onions fed with a continuous-release plant food.
  • Onions can be eaten at nearly any size so harvest when they’re the right size for your next culinary creation.
