Yesterday the onion sets were planted!
Unlike seed onions, these onion sets are already 1 year old. So they are on the field for a shorter time. They grow faster, can withstand lower temperatures and are less affected by diseases and insects.
These onions will be harvested at the beginning of July. When the foliage starts to fall, they are still growing strong. Once the foliage has fallen down, its time to harvest. We can expect 50 to 60000 kg onions per hectare.
The onions then have to dry, after which they are ready to be peeled and processed in our company. Just in time, because the storage onions are usually out of stock at the end of June.
Maybe something to try in your own vegetable garden?
