Early yields of red onions. Conventional seed with NOP-compliant pelleting.
Cabernet produces medium-large globe-shaped onions with deep red color. Late-intermediate adaptation gives an earlier harvest than long-day reds without sacrificing size. Good internal color, mostly single centers. 4-6 month storage. Adaptation: 35°-45° latitude. Avg. 17,700 seeds/lb.
Reduce time-consuming thinning and increase planting uniformity by seeding pelleted onions with a precision seeder. Our onion seeds are coated with a Natural seed enhancement and then pelleted with inert NOP-compliant materials. These pellets are size 13.0, are ideal for direct sowing, and can be planted with Stanhay seeders (belt size 13.0) or any of the precision seeders offered by Johnny's. For best results, we recommend consistent soil moisture during the germination period. Pelleted seed must be kept cool and dry prior to planting, and should be used within one year of purchase. AVG. SEEDING RATE: 464,600 seeds/acre @ 16 pellets/ft. ( 3/4" spacing) in rows 18" apart or 16,000 pellets/1,000' row. SEED SPECS: SEEDS/LB.: Avg. 15,300-17,700 (avg. 16,500).
