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.

  1. Lisa

    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.

  2. Lauren

    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!

    I have been growing these with great success in the foothills of the North Cascades in Washington state. I get lovely large onions and they add a delicious flavor to cooking. Not hot or overbearing.

    This is my 3rd year ordering from Dixondale Farms. I live in Memphis Tn. (zone 7) and have grown 1015y and Southern Belle each year. The people at Dixondale are dependable and great with the knowledge they share I don’t know how many more years I will be gardening as I am 78 now but as long as I am able to garden my onions will come from Dixondale.

    Excellent onions. I will order from Dixondale Farms from now on. My family also wants to order from you.

    These grew excellently for us here in NW Wyoming. Needs nothing beyond standard care for a garden. The taste is excellent cured quickly and satisfactorily. Will grow them again!
