Those are gorgeous!! How do I grow them like that?? I live in southern California in a desert climate that is usually at or above 100 degrees for a good part of the year. Can I grow these in this kind of climate??

Ta :) Probably best if you try autumn planted sets if they're available over there, think it might be a bit too hot for a summer crop.

Looks like a draw between Tetters and I with the big onions, one weighed in at 302 grams...

And the other at 303 grams

We'll be eating the big onions first as they don't store as well as the regular onions.

I haven't lifted mine yet, as I'm in Scotland until a week on Sunday.
I must say that I expect to exceed 700g with at least 4, if nothing amiss happens in the meantime.

We've dried the rest of the Kelsaes and Showmasters as they weren't keeping very well.
