Planting

Onion set Allium Cepa ‘Corrado’ can be planted in rows between late February and mid-April. Recommended spacing distance between rows is about 30 cm. The distance between the onions is about 8 cm. First dig and loosen the soil then push the onions into the soil just below the surface. Delay planting in wet weather, important to know: onions love and grow best in full sun!

Planting method

In the garden - March-June.

Plant in the garden, preferably in full sun from March up to June. Fork the soil loose to at least 30 cm. Draw a straight furrow of around 4 cm deep and label the row. Plant at 10 cm intervals. Cover your onion sets with about 3 cm of soil, press lightly down and sprinkle with water. Extra rows at 30 cm apart.

Care

Onion ‘Corrado’ is an easy-to-grow vegetable and is ideal for any new gardener. In winter, add some garden fertiliser into the soil (about 50 grams per square metre) and sprinkle 40 grams of potassium per square metre. Make sure that after planting you keep the area free from weeds. During dry periods, do not forget to water to promote the development of the onions. In very wet summers, remove the wet soil around the onions, a few weeks before harvesting.

Harvesting onions

From mid-July onwards, you can start harvesting Allium cepa 'Corrado'. When about half the foliage has yellowed and beginning to wilt the onions can be lifted gently from the soil. Tie them in bundles to dry or spread them over an area sheltered from the rain. Once the outer skins become dry, remove all the wilted leaves. Onions can be stored for a long time in a cool and dry place.

Extra

Onion 'Corrado' F1 hybrid (Allium cepa) is a small, slightly elongated onion, firm with a fine flavour. A 1kg pack will produce 40 kg of mature onions. Be sure to have some parsley, chamomile and marigold nearby to keep onion flies away from the plants. Onions are very healthy and contain high levels of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin C. Onion Sets should have a rotation cycle when planted at home as root crops.
