250 Texas Early Grano Onion Seeds

Our Texas Early Grano sweet onions are a short day variety with good yields of very sweet onions. This softball-sized bulb is straw-colored with white flesh, is excellent fresh or cooked, and has a short to moderate storage life. This variety is quite disease resistant and should be ready to pick in 110 days.

Sowing: Since onions take a few months to mature from seed, gardeners with a short growing season may want to start their seed indoors. Plant the Texas Early Grano sweet onion seeds for sale 1/2" deep in a flat 2-3 months before the last frost date; keep the soil moist and at room temperature. When the tops begin to flop over, cut them off to 3" to focus the growing on the roots. Four weeks before the last frost or when the soil reaches at least 50 degrees F, transplant the seedlings 6" apart in rows 12" apart. For direct sowing, sow three seeds per inch 1/2" deep in light, rich soil and full sun. Thin the seedlings 2-6" apart, depending on the desired size. Thinned onions can be transplanted or used for fresh eating. For companion planting benefits, plant onions with members of the cabbage family, lettuce, or tomatoes; avoid planting onions with peas or beans. In areas with warmer winters, these onion seeds for sale may be grown as a fall or winter crop.

Growing: Onions need moisture especially in their first several weeks of growth, and they cannot fight against weeds; mulching onions can help with both moisture and weed control. Texas Early Grano onions are quite disease resistant.
