I was very happy with 'Ringmaster'. It was one of the best flavored ones of last years crops. Even the ones that were lost under an out of control squash plant did well! It stores 4-5 months. Onions bother my eyes more than most people's; my eyes not only water, but burn so bad that I can't open them for several minutes. These had a minimal reaction.
