Southern Rainbow Onion Sampler Close This Window

The short-day varieties start the bulbing process when daylight length reaches 10-12 hours. They take approximately 110 days to mature in the south when planted during winter or early spring, and just 75 days in the north when planted in late spring.  The earlier you plant them, the larger they get, but they won't get very big in the northern states. The recommended planting time is 4-6 weeks before your last average frost date.

Red Creole

Dark red, globe shaped, pungent, open pollinated
Size Potential: 3-4"
Storage Potential: Approx. 6-7 months
Days to Harvest: 110

With excellent flavor and a slightly pungent taste, the Red Creole bulbs are both attractive and will store well even in short day areas. Great flavor for  cooks that are looking for a spicy or Cajun onion. This onion will develop great red color at maturity.

Texas Early White

White, globe shaped, sweet, open pollinated
Size Potential: 5"
Storage Potential: Approx. 2 months
Days to Harvest: 105

Able to adapt to tough South Texas environmental conditions, Texas Early White offers uniform maturity, resistance to greening, pink root tolerance, single centers, bolting resistance, and good shelf life. Can be grown in intermediate day areas as well since it is a "late" short day onion.


Texas Supersweet

Yellow, globe shaped, sweet, open pollinated
Size Potential: Up to 6"
Storage Potential: 2 to 3 months
Days to Harvest: 115

The jumbo yellow-skin globes have sweet, piquant white flesh. Plentifully produces onions as big as softballs. Texas Supersweet is prized for its extraordinarily sweet and mellow taste, as well as its generous size. They are very disease resistant and will store better than other short day onions.
