2606-LO Allium cepa

(Storage) 108 days from seed.

We at Hope Seeds, lovers of onions (and all things allium, for that matter!), are impressed by this one’s excellent keeping capacity, large bulb-size and gorgeous colouring so that, when cut in half, Bennie's looks just like a bull's-eye. Many other seed houses have had crop failures for this for years, so Hope Seeds is happy to be offering the fruits of hard labour here.
