Red Baron heat treated onion sets – 500 grams

£3.50

Heat treated Red Baron onion set is the best red-skinned variety. The attractive, crimson-skinned bulbs when sliced reveal contrasting red and white rings, making it most attractive on the plate. Red Baron has a lovely, robust flavour and is a remarkably good keeper. The perfect partner for Cupido.

Heat treating our onion sets is rather like turbo-charging them! This totally natural process takes several months, but the process means they establish and grow very rapidly, giving higher yields – and with virtually no risk of prematurely running to seed or ‘bolting’.

Special Note: Onion sets are simply small, immature onions, which have been lifted and dried to prevent any further growth. Once planted in spring the sets grow in size and each one forms a full-sized bulb when ready to harvest.

How to grow?.

  • Plant onion sets in rows in any firm, well drained soil in full sun.
  • Prepare the planting area several weeks in advance by incorporating some well rotted garden compost to improve drainage and soil fertility. Avoid planting onions on freshly manured soil.
  • On particularly wet ground, try growing onion sets in raised beds.
  • Plant the bulbs so that the tip of bulb is just protruding through the soil surface.
  • Leave a space of 10cm (4″) between each bulb, and 30cm (12″) between each row.
