This is a great onion for the Gulf Coast. They get to good size and are good keepers. I harvested mine in late May and it's now late December. I kept them in the garage which is well ventilated and have only lost one. It got a soft center. I still have a couple dozen left and they're holding well. I started them from seed in early September.
