White Grano Onions Growth Habits:
Allium Cepa is ready to harvest in 100- 110 days. All onions need well-draining soil that is rich and moist. White Grano Onions are annuals that are typically planted in the spring in the Southern U.S. The 3-4” bulbs are top-shaped. Green sprouts will form in a week or two. These green sprouts can be consumed immediately like scallions. They can also remain on the onion, and this will help the bulb grow. In about three months the greenery will yellow, and the white onion will be ready to harvest. Slower to bolt, White Grano Onions are a great option for climates that are warmer.
