Redwing onions are the most popular long day red onion grown by commercial growers. Simply the best long day red onion grown in the Northern areas. Deep internal red color continues to develop during storage. May not do well in southern portions of the long day areas since this is a true long day and does require at least 15 hours of daylength to bulb. Redwing onions are slightly more pungent than Red Zeppelin. Resistant to foliar disease and bolting.

    I grow these because they store a long time and are very hardy taking adverse weather in stride and still bulbing up uniformly. They are very strong-tasting some years, though, and definitely can make you cry some while processing. This is an onion that has a place in my onion patch every year. A super vigorous grower even in heavy clay and less than optimal growing conditions. Redwing every year for me.

    Ordered these for first time in 2021 – they grew great!!! Nice big bulbs, and stored a really long time for me, March 6th and we’re still eating them. Decided to review them since I’m placing an order for this years onions.
