Allium cepa

Seed Type Hybrid Seed
Plant Type Long Day

Red Carpet Onion Seeds offer excellent yields and feature robust, tightly packed, red skins, allowing them to maintain their quality for an extended period. With a globe-shaped form, these bulbs reach a size of three to four inches and exhibit a rounded shoulder. The deep red color of the skin extends to the interior layers, further enhancing its visual appeal. Additionally, this variety demonstrates intermediate resistance to Pink Root, a common onion disease. This long-day storage onion variety requires 14 to 16 hours of daylength to initiate bulb formation.
