ORGANICALLY GROWN GIANT Texas Early Grano 1LB Onion Seeds Heirloom NON-GMO, Allium cepa., Yellow, Delicious, High Yielding, 110 days. Stores up to 5 months.
Planting Depth: 1/4". SOIL temperature MUST be kept at 60-80F for proper germination!!! Cool soil, particularly at night can inhibit or significantly delay germination. Overly warm soils, well above 90F, can inhibit germination and provide ideal conditions for seed rot.
To keep soil temperature warm, start seeds indoors. Keep the container covered with a plastic bag on the top of the fridge where the room temperature is higher, therefore the soil temperature is good for germination.
Keep soil moderately moist, though not overly, dripping wet. Water soil when the soil surface just begins to dry. Allow proper air circulation for containers.
If tops grow too tall and begin to droop, trim back to about 3 inches tall with scissors. After hardening off, transplant 2 to 4 weeks before last frost date.
