Planting & Growing: To start outdoors, sow 1 inch apart in rows 8 inches apart. Cover with 1/4 inch soil, firm and keep moist. Think gradually to 4" spacing. To start indoors, sow 1 inch apart in containers of seed starting mix and cover 1/4 inch deep. Provide a strong light source until 2-3 inches tall. Transplant 4 inches apart, burying crowns 1 inch deep.

Nice flavor

I had a good crop of smaller onions, but they had nice flavor and kept quite well. Very few bolted.
