Autumn Onion: Senshyu Onion sets. Allium cepa.

Senshyu Onion sets. A hardy winter variety, suitable for planting in autumn. These sets have been cultivated in The Netherlands.
These bulblets produce round shaped, tasty white onions.

How to grow:
Work your soil into a nice tilth, add organic material or compost to help improve the soil and the drainage. Plant anytime from September to mid-November. Position the bulblets 10cms apart in rows 20-30cms apart. Plant root end down and up to their necks. They need to be in a position to receive full sunlight over the winter months. Onions will be ready early July onwards.
Harvest 2 weeks after you see the stems bending over at the onion neck. Dry your onions out in a well ventilated dry area for 3-4 weeks. You can then store them for up to 8 months.

Problem solving:
Birds love to pull the young bulbs out – looking for grubs underneath, so protect until established if this appears to be a problem. Plant in full sun. Keep watered in a drought. In winter plant into a fairly well drained area.
Rotate onion planting location in the veg plot to help keep disease away.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Onions are so popular in Ireland these need no introduction. We love these, they’re such a great all rounder, perfect for cooking in every dish. If you like the taste milder just soak in tepid water for a short time and this doesn’t affect the great crunchy texture. Great for French onion soup or for caramalising as onion jam.

Cultural history:
It’s said if you cut an onion in half, it will soak up any germs in the room, especially good in the house of a sick person to keep the air clean, onions are known for their antiseptic properties.
