CULTURE: Sow in early spring in 2-4" wide bands or single rows 4" apart, about 1/2" between seeds. Cover 1/4- 1/2". Thinning is not necessary. Keep free of weeds. As with all onions, full sun, consistent soil moisture, and a fertile soil with a pH of 6.2-6.8 is preferable.
HARVEST: Pull by the bunch whenever needed.No skin forms until 2-3 months into the season, making mini onions easy to wash and prepare.
