  • Posted by farmerdill (Augusta Georgia - Zone 8a) on Jun 6, 2016 5:41 PM concerning plant:
    Hybrid short-day yellow grano type for over winter growing. Very uniform and productive. Moderate tolerance to Pink Root. Large round mild bulb.
    Addendum: Best keeping short day onion I have grown. A few are beginning to sprout but many will keep into 2021.
