Riverside Onion

Riverside (Allium cepa) is an outstanding short-to-intermediate day (for growing areas south of latitude 40˚N, and will perform best south of 35˚N) yellow onion. Flavor is on the sweeter side, but there is a hit of spiciness in there as well. Bulbs can reach over two pounds and have good storage potential due to their thick outer later. Second generation seed produced by us in Ojai, California: emphasis with this selection was resistance to early bolting and disease such as purple blotch. Read about Quin's work with this crop in 2018-2019.

Onions are biennials. Riverside will produce bulbs 115 days when fall seeded under ideal conditions; 90-100 when spring sown.
