Would Like to Grow a Sweet Onion

gabrielle2005February 23, 2007


I'm trying to think ahead for gardening this spring. Has anyone had any success with growing a sweet onion here in Minnesota? If so, what variety, and did you use sets, transplants, or seeds?

I've had good success with both Walla Wallas, and Candy. I always start with plants. I usually order from Dixondale Farms. Several of my friends get together on 1 order to take advantage of their quanity discounts. Neither of those is a long term storage onion.
