White Pickling Onion Seeds (Crystal Wax Type) 1845. Heirloom Vegetable.

Small, round, white onions have firm, fine-grained flesh with a mild flavour. This onion is harvested before fully grown and used extensively for pickling or the cocktail trade.

How to Grow

Seed can be started indoors in a soil-less growing medium in February. The seedlings can then be transplanted outside later in spring. Seed can also be sown directly outdoors from mid April, 8-15 mm (1/4-1/2″) deep and 15 mm (1/2″) apart in rows 30 cm (12″) apart. Thin to 5 cm (3″) apart for cooking onions, and 7.5 cm (3″) apart for the sweet Spanish types. Onions do best in a sunny site with fertile, well drained soil. Bend over any flower stalks that start to grow so the plant’s energy goes into building the bulb. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20’) of row.
