Yellow Sweet Spanish Onions Seeds
need rich, loose soil to do well.
Keep weeded and fed well as they have a
shallow root system and don't like competition.
Onions grown from seed or plants will usually yield
higher-quality with fewer disease problems
than if they are grown from sets.
Plant seed about 1/4-1/2 inch deep in rows 18 inches apart.
Thin to 4-6 inches apart.
Plant times vary widely based on your
location and onion type, generally early spring or indoors for
long-day/northern varieties, fall for short-day/southern types.
Soil should be at least 70F.
Check with your local agriculture department
for instructions specific to your area.
Allow the thick necks to dry well before harvest.
How To Harvest
Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion Heirloom Seeds
You have to wait until the seed heads have matured enough
so that the black seeds are visible and
the little pods around them start to dry.
Then snip the heads off and continue drying in a paper bag.
When fully dry, rubbing everything between your hands
will separate the seeds from the chaff.
Remove the bigger pieces of trash manually and
winnow the rest in a good breeze or with a fan.
The white core of the blossom will not winnow out
since it is about the same weight as a seed.
They are removed by dumping the seeds into a bowl
of water whereupon the seeds sink but the core floats.
Clean seeds are then spread on a paper towel to dry.
Store your seeds in a container in a cool dry area.
