Dutch Onions (Hamburger Type)


Dutch Onion Sets can be planted from January through July and zone permitting in the fall. Plant in good well drained garden soil. Plant 4 to 6 inches apart. Plant only 1  inch deep but leave 12 inches between planting rows. Onion sets prefer a sunny location in the vegetable garden. If for some reason onion sets cannot be planted, store bulbs in a cool, dry but well ventilated space to prevent sprouting. Onions should be harvested when the tops change color and start turning yellow. Start pulling plants and let them dry on top of the soil for a few days. Dutch yellow onions can also be harvested early and then used as a green onion.
