From our seed source, Edgewood Nursery's Aaron Parker: "This is a second-generation cross of at least 7 varieties of biennial storage onion, all allowed to cross pollinate. As this mix contains many different F1 hybrids, this is the first step in a storage onion landrace breeding project. From the onions you grow from this packet you could select your own variety of onion (or varieties or landraces), or just grow some tasty onions and eat them. In short season areas onions should be started very early indoors. If you have interesting results from these seeds please get in touch, we would love to hear about it!" This is an F2 population (second generation).
