Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: To ensure a healthy yield of Utah Yellow Sweet Spanish Onions, select a location with full sun exposure and well-draining soil. Plant seeds about 1/4 inch deep, maintaining a space of 12-15 inches between each to accommodate their size. Regular watering is crucial but avoid over-watering to prevent rotting. Monitor their growth, and when the tops begin to yellow and fall over, typically around the 110–130-day mark, they are ready for harvest. Upon harvesting, cure the onions in a dry, airy space for several days, enhancing their storage potential. If stored correctly, these onions can last for months, providing you with a consistent supply of sweetness.
