ON591A - Patterson Coated
This fantastic long day storage onion replaces the much loved Copra. Patterson onion seeds produce very round, uniform bulbs with strong skins and a capacity for storage that can stretch to several months. It is the perfect onion for fall and winter use, but they may last until the following spring in the right conditions. The bulbs are medium to large in size with thin necks that dry well and quickly. The firm flesh has well defined layers (rings) and a strong flavour. This is probably the best storage onion for southern and central Canada and the northern US.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

How To Grow
Choose sweet onion varieties for enjoying raw or cooked within a couple of months of harvest. Storage types keep much longer, and will last until the following spring in the right conditions. All onions are photoperiodic – day length triggers bulb development. Our varieties are all “long day” types, suitable for northern US and Canada.
