I pulled up a 1 lb 5 oz Candy onion today for lunch and dinner. Yesterday I pulled up a brown - yellow onion 3 1/2" diameter for dinner. For a week we have been eating Red onions too. Most onions were planted from sets, sets never grow larger than 2 or 2 1/2" diameter. BIG slicer onions grow from 2 month old onion plants. Candy onion is a mild onion with good flavor. Yellow-brown onion is a stronger onions they will burn you eyes real good just slicing them. Red onions have the best flavor wow these are so good very strong flavor, slice a red onions tear gas will run blind you and run you out of the house. I planted 400 onions again this year it takes about 8 small onions to equal a grocery store onion. Some onions get big & some don't. Sets often grow golf ball size onions.
