Kelsae Sweet Giant

Kelsae Sweet Giant


Spanish Onion (Seeds)
Allium cepa
Ultra large onion. Firm and heavy onion with a sweet and tasty flesh. Keeps for a short period. Something different for the home gardener.
CULTURAL PRACTICES: For a summer harvest, sow them in March and transplant them into the garden in May. For a fall harvest, sow them directly in the garden as soon as the ground can be properly worked. SOIL: Indoor: A well-drained, porous sowing media is best to prevent overwatering. A rich and fertile soil of mineral or organic matter. Soil must be kept moist but not wet. SPACING: Space rows 35 to 38 cm apart. For larger bulbs, clear the plants 7 to 8 cm apart Thinned plants taste great in a salad. GROWING TIPS: Applying a fertilizer is recommended and should be repeated when the bulbs begin to swell. HARVESTING: Storage onions: when the onion tops begin to fall over, turn brown and wither. Drying may be accelerated by bending down some of the tops. Pick the onions then place them in a warm, dry, ventilated area to preserve. When dried, store the onions in a cool, dry location. Bunching Onions: it is best to harvest them when they are young and green.
