Red onion sets for planting – Grow your own!
Red onion sets are easy to plant and will grow medium to large sized onions that have a range of culinary uses. They can be harvested a few weeks after planting as an unusual looking tasty green onion, or allowed to mature into a large onion for fresh eating and short term storage.
Red onions are great for salads, sandwiches, and other fresh uses, plus are great for cooking where the place of colour can really brighten up a dish that calls for yellow onions.
Onion sets are very small onion bulbs that are planted about 1″ into the soil and quickly produce a green sprout. Within 2-4 weeks enough of should have formed that the set can be harvested as a green onion or it can be left to mature. Harvest in mid to late summer when the tops start to fall over and dry completely before putting into storage.
