Texas Early Grano is a sweet onion that can be planted during late spring or early summer. This is a less pungent short day to indeterminate day variety. It is also a great variety because it is resistant to Pink Root and Onion Thrips.
Pull up the onion plants once the leaves begin to wilt and dry, about 175 days after sowing. Tie the onions up in bundles and store in a cool dry place.
Sow seed directly in Spring/Summer, 9-12 mm deep and 10-15 cm apart. Seed germinates in 10-15 days.
Onions are light feeders and should be planted after heavy feeders. Rotate crops every two years.
