Red Baron onions are a round red onion which are mild in flavour and are perfect in salads and salsas
Bulb size 14-21cm
SOIL PREPARATION: Onions require a well drained, fertile soil that will need to be deeply dug over before planting.
For the best results dig in organic compost or manure a few weeks before planting.
This will help add nutrients, improve soil structure and hold moisture.
PLANTING: Plant the sets from March to April
Prepare the rows 22cm apart and then space the bulbs 10cm apart and 2-5cm deep along each row.
Press the bulbs gently into the ground, nose facing upwards, cover them with a thin layer of soil and firm the soil around the bulb.
CARE:Keep the area weed free by regular hoeing and ensure the bulbs remain covered with soil.
Keep them well watered during the growing season
Stop watering when the bulbs have swollen and expose the top of the bulbs to the light by gently pulling back the earth around them.
Break off any flower stems that may appear.
HARVESTING: When the leaves turn yellow and the foliage collapses leave in the ground for 2 more weeks before lifting.
Lift gently from underneath using a fork so as not to damage any bulbs.
Remove any dirt, roots and brittle stems, spread them out in a crate or on a sack to enable them to dry for 7-10 days.
When dry they can be placed in nets or tied together and hung in a cool but frost free place within a dry and well ventilated environment.
These may then be stored for up to 8 months.
Grown from cultivated stock.
