White Ebenezer Onion Bulbs
White Ebenezer onions are always crisp and delicious – one of the most popular onions grown in home gardens. The bulbs are medium sized, ranging from a baseball to softball with light gold to almost white papery skin and white flesh. Grows great small-bulbed green onions in warmer climates or when planted in the fall. Unsurpassed as long-shanked scallions or small bulb pickling onions.
These are somewhat sweeter and milder in flavor than yellow onions that keep well but not quite as long as the yellow varieties. Their crisp texture and mild flavor make them great served raw, slivered in salads, sliced thinly on a sandwich or burger, scattered over a pizza or in stir-fries. Very popular in Latin American dishes or substituted for yellow onions when a milder flavor is needed.
White onions are middle of the road in flavor and assertiveness, milder than yellows but stronger than reds or sweets.
Most commercial onions found in stores are hybrids with less flavor than the older heirloom, open pollinated types. Hybridization has focused on production, ability to withstand transport and size; ignoring flavor. Once you taste your home-grown onions, you’ll understand why these are prized and handed down from one generation to another!
Long day variety – needs 14 to 16 hours of daylight to form good sized bulbs. Grows best in northern US states.
These are ready to plant sets, also called bulbs and not seeds or slips.
Each 1/2 lb. order is approximately 55 – 65 bulbs.
