Crystal White Wax Onion

Description
Mild-Flavored Southern Heirloom
A traditional favorite in the South, Crystal White Wax Onion is white-skinned with a mild, tasty flavor. It's perfect for eating raw, fresh slicing and cooking. Also known as White Bermuda, this medium-sized, juicy, sweet onion is dependable and always mild and flavorful. Many gardeners also grow this variety to pearl size for pickling and cocktail onions. Exhibits strong disease resistance, including Pink Root tolerance. A short-day variety, it has a short storage life. Onions are affected by the amount of light they receive. Short-day onions begin forming bulbs when daylight lasts 10-12 hours. Often, they are the sweetest onions and the best for eating raw and in salads or lightly cooked in salsas and stir-fries. Because summer daylight hours are shorter in the South, short-day onions are most often grown in the South. 120 DAYS.
