Description

Highlander onions’ slightly flat, globe-shaped bulbs are lighter in color than most long day varieties, but the bulbs are very firm with thin necks. Highlander is the main variety planted by large onion farmers in the northeastern United States for early marketing. Excellent yield potential with primarily jumbo production. Since Highlander is an extra-early maturing variety, these onion plants can be planted in all the intermediate day areas, as well as the long day areas. Highlander onions will store up to five months. With its tight, thin neck it Highlander onions are easy to cure. Highlander is tolerant to botrytis and downy mildew, the two most common diseases in onions.

    After trying to grow several varieties each year, I have settled on just this one due to its consistent quality, yield and storage ability for growing in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Onions are quite large, sweet, and keep for 4-5 months in my basement.

    These are the only onions I’ve ever been able to grow above 6000 feet north of the 45th parallel. Year after year, Highlanders produce beautiful round globes, despite less than a 45-day frost-free growing season. They store well– it’s currently February and I still have about 7 lbs stored, holding up firmly. Thanks so much to Dixondale for your advice seven years ago, which finally changed the tide of my previous onion failures!
