Description

[300 days] One the first onions of the season, Shenshyu yellow globes were introduced to the UK from Japan in the early 70's. In the decades since, it’s proven to be a hardy, overwintering onion that can survive temperatures down to minus 18°C (0°F). The plant itself offers superb bulbs with crisp, white flesh and straw-coloured skins.

This particular onion grows well in heavy soils and provides large bulbs with half the effort of spring-sown varieties. And since they’re ready for harvest during the drier months of June and July, outdoor curing is as easy as pie!

Recommended by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany.

Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 10cm (4").
