Riverside Onion

Riverside (Allium cepa) is an open pollinated short / intermediate day onion (note: for growing between latitudes between 25° and 42°; i.e. Southern US).This yellow skinned onion is on the sweeter side, but there is a hit of spiciness in there as well. Bulbs can reach over two pounds and have good storage potential due to their thick outer later. Second generation seed produced by us in Ojai, California: emphasis with this selection was resistance to early bolting and disease such as purple blotch.

Read about Quin's work with improving this heirloom in 2018-2019, which includes some history of Riverside. We will further select and improve this strain in 2021 for 2022 seed production.

Onions are biennials. Riverside will produce bulbs 115 days when fall seeded under ideal conditions; 90-100 when spring sown.
