A sweet juicy onion named after the northwest Washington city in which it originated. Many people compare it to the Vidalia onion because of its sweetness. Seeds are sown in August for summer harvests. In areas where winters are harsh, seeds or plants can be sown in the spring. The low sulfur content makes these a less “teary” onion when sliced.
SEED COUNT: 50 SEEDS
Planting Instructions: Sow seeds ¼” deep and 3-4” apart. In areas with mild winters sow seeds in late August for a summer harvest. Also can be sown in spring for early fall harvest. When necks become soft and tops are falling over, pull and sun-cure at least 2–7 days, depending on the weather. Move to a protected location to finish drying. When dry, trim off tops and roots and store in onion bags or shallow boxes in a cold space.
