Senshyu or Frosthart Onion
I like to grow onions from seed and this one may make it easier than ever for my zone (5). I planted the seeds in my garden last fall (October). Now I have the healthiest looking onions ever at this time of the year. I just have to spread them out because I planted them too close. I had great germination. The only problem is that Gourmet Seeds seems to have discontinued this variety and I do not know were else to get them unless I save seed and I have a feeling I might have to wait until next year for them to set seed. If anyone else has knowledge of where to get seed or experience growing this variety, I would be interested.
Also, if you know of other varieties that do well when started in the fall in a cold climate, I would love to know of them.
