Story of this Seed:
Can be found growing wild on Jicarilla Apache country, around Dulce and Chama, near the Colorado border in north central New Mexico.
Plant onions as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring, usually late March or April. Make sure temperature doesn’t go below 20 degrees F. Select a location with full Sun where your onions won’t be shaded by other plants.
Soil needs to be well-drained, loose, and rich in nitrogen; compact soil affects bulb development. About one inch of water per week (including rain water) is sufficient. If you want sweeter onions, water more.
