Keeps well in the garden, and will eventually mature into a slightly oval pearl onion of small size, perfect for munching, mincing, useful in soups, on salads, and for tacos or enchiladas.

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.

Growing Tips:

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.
