Description

We’ve made it easy for those who want to plant three of our short day onion varieties, but may not have enough space to plant an entire bunch of each variety. Our Short Day Sampler is a bundle of 50-75 plants that includes a mixture of 1015Y Texas Super Sweet, Texas Early White, and Red Creole onion varieties, providing a nice combination of color and flavor. This exclusive combination gives short day areas both sweet and storage onions to enjoy for months.

    Shipment was two weeks later than advertised and onions were not in prime condition. Foliage was mostly yellowed and brown, some were dried out and crispy, and some onion sets were just plain mush. Varieties were not marked so impossible to tell which was which. I contacted Dixondale and was told it was advertised that varieties would not be marked. I don’t see that stated on the website, and if I am supposed to identify the variety “by how it looked” I only received one tinged with red so I will assume I received one red creole in the sampler. Of the remaining plants some were decent sized and some were extremely small and mushy. That must be how I’m supposed to tell the difference in variety. I would submit this review with zero stars, but that’s not possible. I definitely will not be ordering from this company again.

      Our samplers are a mix of 3 varieties which include a red, yellow, and white onion. These samplers have the seed mixed when planting and are picked straight from the field. Due to this we can not guarantee the amount of each variety to be even. The plants being dry will not be an issue for the plant, we suggest when receiving the plants to let them air out if not planting immediately. The shipping issue is an anomaly and we do apologize for that and if you would like we can send you another Short Day Sampler, contact customerservice@dixondalefarms.com. I would suggest still planting the dry onions they will do great.

    My plants came exactly as scheduled according to the zip code guide. I had to wait a couple weeks to plant because I didn’t have my beds ready, but I unpacked them immediately as directed and all the plants were still perfect when I did plant them. There weren’t as many red onions as I hoped, but the description clearly stated that it would be a random mix. I bought 4 bundles of different items, (this mix, white Bermuda, yellow ganex, and cipollini). I prepared space for 300 onions thinking it was plenty, but then I had to create another bed for close to 75 more! I thought for sure it was because some of them were tiny, and surely wouldn’t make it (especially since I waited 2 weeks to plant), but they are THRIVING! I seriously can’t tell which ones I thought were small any more. Being new to onion growing (successfully anyway, tried and failed before) I’ve asked a few questions on the Facebook page and received prompt and helpful responses. I’ve never been so excited to garden in the winter (when it is so pleasant in Texas!) Thanks!

    Onions came as described online. This will be my first attempt at growing onions. It looks like I have a good mix of the three varieties. They all look healthy. We will be planting next week.

    I was late ordering my onion starts from my usual suppler, and they had sold out of short day varieties. A Google search led me Dixondale Farms . The sample pack was a reasonable price, so I put in an order. They arrived yesterday, right on schedule. I believe they are best I’ve ever bought, and came with an excellent planting guide.
    Good service and good products deserves a plug.

    We got our onions early and weren’t ready to plant. Of course we worried but took off the rubber band and laid them out on a brown paper bag. We got them planted and they were doing GREAT! Next thing we know, we had a hail storm! It took out our entire patch! I contacted Dixondale and they told me not to worry that onions are hardy plants! Sure enough they’ve come back! They are looking great! We had a few to flower but other than that, they’re perfect! We’re so glad we found Dixondale and the onions we need. We’ll know more next year! Thanks for all of your help!
