The most popular and recommended variety we offer is Candy! This onion is great for anyone that has never had much success growing onions. Candy onion plants are so easy to grow due to their strong root system and disease resistance. Unless you live in the southern most portions of the short day area or the northern most portions of the long day area, Candy will produce beyond your expectations. Long day areas should plant Candy onion plants as early as possible so it can reach full size potential. Every year it amazes us how many of these we sell! Authorized to be used in the Pennsylvania Sweet program.

    These onions are the best!! They are so sweet and if you follow proper onion growing technique you can get HUGE onions from these. Thanks guys!

    First time planting onions and I had a bountiful crop of large (5-6″) deliciously sweet onions! With some plan ahead storage preparation, I harvested in June and they lasted thru November. The key is a cool, dry, dark place with lots of air circulation. Although I am an experienced gardener, even a beginner would have success with these. Do not hesitate to try them! 🙂

    Montana Zone 4/5 – Dixondale’s Candy onions were the best onions I’ve ever grown Wonderful sweetness, good size for our growing conditions. They over-wintered better than any other variety I’ve grown (proper drying, root cellar storage). We’re going for even more this year, we are so happy with them!

    Upstate New York (Hudson Valley) – They do really well for us here, many are softball size or even larger and they KEEP really well. No growing problems!
