Vegetables Onions

Meryt
(F1) Onion Seed

Product ID: 4432

New! Profitable white cipollini.

A solution for growers who want more marketable crops of white cipollinis, which can be difficult to grow. Meryt's upright, blue-green tops tolerate thrips pressure well. Bulbs are very uniform with mostly single centers. Thin necks dry down easily, and thick skins protect the bulbs from greening in the sun. Good, pungent flavor. A bit later to mature than Bianca di Maggio, but worth the wait. Avg. 1 1/2–3" diam. x 3/4–1" depth. Best for short-term storage. Avg. 142,900 seeds/lb. Packet: 250 seeds.

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Allium cepa
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 are 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.
ADAPTATION: Mini onions are smaller and earlier to bulb the further north they are grown. Suited to 40° and higher latitudes for pearl and cipollini onions, for small to medium onions at lower latitudes.
AVG. DIRECT SEEDING RATE: 5M/50', 1 oz./80', 13 oz./1,000', 34 lb./acre at 96 seeds/ft. in 4" wide bands, in rows 12" apart.
SIZED SEEDS: All seeds are unsized.
SEED SPECS: SEEDS/LB.: 113,700-134,300 (avg. 123,300).
PACKET: 1,000 seeds.
