I am looking for Pearl or cocktail onions.

Some of the types would be, but not limited too, are Crystal Wax (also known as White Bermuda), Eclipse (L303). For trial: Barletta (or White Pearl), White Mexican (or El Toro).

In Mexico they are called, "Cebolla Cambray". I order these grilled onions all the time in Mexico and I have even found them in local Mexican grocery stores, but I would like to grow them myself.

Dean, onion seeds are usually [recommended] viable for just a year or so, I don't have any. But I grew Barletta a 4-5 years ago... I got mine back then from Pinetree Garden Seeds (
