Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: For a thriving crop of Red Creole Onions, choose a location with full sun and well-draining soil. Begin by sowing seeds about 1/4 inch deep, maintaining a distance of 3-4 inches between seeds to allow for bulb development. Regular watering, ensuring the soil remains moist but not waterlogged, is essential for optimal growth. As they approach maturity, the bulbs will start pushing out of the ground, indicating that they are ready for harvest. Once harvested, allow them to dry for several days in a shaded, well-ventilated area before storing to ensure longevity.
