From our friend Frank Kutka, professor at the College of Menominee Nation, 'Caramel Yellow' is an open-pollinated, mid-season, long-day onion population developed in North Dakota that stores very well. These yellow onions have a parentage that includes both open-pollinated and hybrid varieties from the USA, and early, long storing open-pollinated varieties from Russia and the USDA collection. This is a highly diverse population, so it's perfect for future breeding and adaptation efforts. We're certainl you'll find these onions delicious too!
