Description

Onion - Cortland - Allium cepa

Biennial Cortland is the new onion on the block, developed from Prince and Copra for even longer storage. Orange-yellow, thick skin on large, uniform, round onions, 3-4" diameter. Tolerant of pink root and fusarium. Long day length onion.

Did You Know? Ancient Egyptians venerated the onion and believed its round shape and concentric rings symbolized eternity.

Soil and Water: Plant in well-fertilized, moderately moist soil.

Planting and Growing: Sow seeds indoors in flats in early spring or sow seed outdoors as soon as the soil is workable. Cover seeds with 1/4" of fine soil. Allow 6"-18" between rows. When seedlings reach 4" tall, thin or transplant 6" apart. Thinnings can be eaten like green onions. Cut off seed heads as they form.

Harvesting and Storage: When mature, bend the tops, expose the bulb and let it stay in the ground until the leaves turn brown. Lift bulbs from the soil, braid tops, and hang outside in the shade to dry for at least 7 days. Store in ventilated, cool, dry area.
