Onions Red Herald and Isobel Rose which were sown mid February and late February respectively.  Otherwise grown the same and planted out right next to each other at the plot.  The Isobel Rose were just a few seeds left from last year that I was using up, but I donít think I will bother again.  Bit of a slacker our Isobel compared to the red onions  :lol:

Just the Globo onions to harvest now  :)

For red onions I'd recommend Redspark. They produce good sized bulbs and are great keepers (I've still got 3 to use from last year) although they are a bit on the tender side when it comes to temperature.

I am a bit pleased with these so bear with me   :D

Globo onions lifted today and set out in the shed to dry, with my mucky little paw in there for scale.

The big daddy one is the biggest onion I have ever grown  :ohmy:

How do Globo keep? I grow a few Exhibition and 'Giant' (which I think may be a Kelsae strain) for big onions but they don't keep particularly well.

They donít keep long term, which is why I also just grow a few.  I have to grow all onions under insect mesh and have limited storage, so I tend to buy basic cooking onions.  These are a bit special and donít last long in this house anyway. I might have to buy some steak for making steak and onions to celebrate the harvest  :)
