Onion - Red Baron F1 Hybrid
A mid-late maturing variety, Onion Red Baron has flattish-round bulbs of a beautiful dark red colour. Onion Red Baron is an excellent cropper producing attractive, firm well flavoured bulbs which keep well.
Sow seeds from late spring. A rich firm, well-drained soil in full sun is required. Sow seeds thinly when the soil surface is dry and workable, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart after raking to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin to 5cm and then 10cm apart. As the leaves start to yellow, bend over the tops, leave for 14 days or so then lift and store when thoroughly ripened.
