Katie went to a charity plant sale, today. They wore their masks and gloves. The plants were put in the back hatch, and they never got within 6' of anyone.

One of the plants she bought was a Candy Sweet Onion. I can't find any reference to whether it's a long-day or something else. All I can find is that it's sweet and easy to grow. I am now the proud mother/grandmother of 4 nice big starts. I guess we'll find out in a few weeks if they really like it here or not. Anybody know anything about these? idk

(You may be thinking if it's sold here, it should grow here, but we have at least 3 hardiness zones within a half hour's drive, so there you have it. geek )

It is an Intermediate Day Onion

https://www.dixondalefarms.com/product/candy/intermediate_day_onions



  • Best suited for growing at latitudes of 32–42°. (Redding is Lat 40.585)
  • Initiate bulb formation at 12–14 hours of daylight.
  • Produce best in Zones 5 and 6, but are adaptable and will form bulbs in any growing zone.
  • Usually planted in spring at central latitudes; planted in early spring at northerly latitudes; planted in fall in mild winter climates.
  • Usually very sweet.

Suz, you are intermediate day and I am on the borderline of intermediate and short day. You should have success with them.

While browsing for seeds, I just noticed that Urban Farmer Seeds sell the Candy Onion seeds.  200 seeds for $3.00.  I may just have to get some of those next spring and see how they do.

I grew sets of this onion last summer, and they were easy and delicious.  They were sold at my local nursery as “Amish Candy” onion sets.  They did not get huge, I wouldn’t characterize them as a sweet onion either, more of a non-bitter normal onion flavor.  I am growing them again this year, though, I really liked them.  They kept well too, in fact I used my last couple about a month ago from last year!  

Winner!
