Onion, Newburg (Organic)

Onion, Newburg (Organic)

$3.50$36.00

Allium cepa. Yellow Storage. 110 days.

Simply the best open pollinated yellow storage onion and one of the best of Dr. Alan Kapuler’s dehybridized gems.  Selected from a European commercial hybrid storage onion, it was reselected under and for organic production. The tightly wrapped, copper-skinned, spherical bulbs are known for their excellent storage life, crisp texture, and medium hot rich flavor. Newburg has out yielded hybrids when trialed under organic conditions, therefore it is a great replacement for the classic hybrid, Copra. Despite the similar name, it is not named after the town of Newberg, Oregon.

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil February to March. Transplant into the garden in April or May, when plants are at least the size of a pencil lead. Space 6” in rows that are 1’ apart. Onions benefit from frequent watering and shallow cultivation. Harvest when stem has shriveled and tipped over.

To save seed, replant at least 20 onions in the second spring. Large, beautiful globe shaped flower stalks attract pollinators. Isolate from other onions by at least ½ mile.
