Onion Hunter River Brown

Overview

Botanical Name: Allium cepa

Our choice as the best all-round early onion, Hunter River Brown produces a large, globe-shaped onion with a light brown skin. An excellent keeper, ideal for Autumn sowing. Onions like a fine rich soil and an open sunny position.

We hope you enjoy these vegetable seeds, just another great example of  vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

 

How To Grow

Sow thinly, 6mm (quarter-inch) deep in rows. Cover with fine soil or compost and keep moist. Thin seedlings early to 2cm (1in) and later to 10cm (4in) apart. Allow 30cm (1ft) between rows. Prepare the soil well by adding organic material and a pre-planting fertiliser. Onion varieties vary in maturity so you can have a crop for many months of the year.
