Description

Brought to the U.S. from the British Isles in 1887 by David Murray, gardener for the Marquis of Ailsa, Ailsa Craig heirloom onions are by far the largest onion you can grow in a short growing season. The key is to plant Ailsa Craig onion plants early and never let them slow down. If you are looking for show-size variety with which to win the county fair for largest onion, Ailsa Craig is it. Pump these onion plants up with lots of nitrogen to get them as big as basketballs. Ailsa Craig onions do not store well, so enjoy them soon after harvesting. Also known as the Kelsae Sweet Giant onions.

    These are very large and sweet onions that are reliable in my Montana garden every year. I leave a few of the largest in the ground for next year’s seed, and have been starting them from seed for years. Here they keep for at least two months hanging around in the utility room as we have such a dry climate and they cure well. Some years I order more plants from Dixondale Farms to have enough of these to go around as family and friends love them, too!

    I’ve been growing these onions here in Nebraska for the past 15 years with excellent results. The largest one I’ve grown was over 6 pounds and I’ve won the largest onion in my county fair several times. I have a refrigerator dedicated for onion storage and these onions will keep up to 6 months in the refrigerator.

    I planted my Ailsa’s in January from Dixondale Farms. Most were in the 3 pound range except one. 7.94 pounds. Largest onion I ever had…. So far.
