Walla Walla Onion
Allium cepa

A long day onion needing 14+ hours of sunlight per day to form bulbs. Very sweet large bulbs, not for long-term storage.

In 2007, the Walla Walla sweet onion was designated as the official vegetable of the state of Washington and was named after the town of Walla Walla, WA. Originally from the island of Corsica, it was brought to Washington by a retired French solider named Peter Pieri. Has impressive winter hardiness and is well-suited to the climate of southeast Washington where it became a very popular onion variety.

Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 200 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Onions have a shallow root system and are adapted for well drained, rich, loam-type soil. Either start seeds indoors, or directly into the garden, in a sunny location, from April to mid-July.

Plant onion seeds ½ inch deep, two to four seeds per inch in rows spaced twelve to sixteen inches apart. Thin the plants to four inches apart to allow the bulbs room to develop. Use thinnings as green onions.
