New York Early is a storage onion that has 2-3" fruit; yellow in color.

Superior strain of Early Yellow Globe selected for storage until early spring. Very firm mild yellow onions may be eaten raw in salads or sandwiches. They average 2½–3" across and store longer than Early Yellow Globe. “My fave, sweet & tender,” evaluated one of our tasters. The strain we list is rated as the best in an independent evaluation. This is our top-selling onion. New York Early was maintained by commercial onion growers in Orange County, NY. Adapted from 38° latitude to southern Quebec.

Seeds are Organic from Fedco and grown with OMRI Certified ProMix Soil, Gnatrol, and Fish Fertilizer for nutrients. We have a great home-grown process to grow our plants. We are not a certified organic farm.

Plants will be available as at least 12 per 2.5" pot.

Plant Spacing recommendation is plant 6-8" apart. Our onions will have at least 10 plants in each pot, most have more. When planting hold onto the onion stems gently and squish the bottom of the pot to release the whole root system. Then gently tug each plant apart from it's neighbor and plant each separately. If a few of them are too tangly you can plant them together and would get smaller onions, 2 small onions approximately the size of one larger one. Onions prefer cool, not cold weather, they should withstand 32*F temperatures, but if it gets colder please cover with a bedsheet, not plastic when temperatures dip.
