WALA WALA ONION SETS
Reviewed By: STORM LEWIS (BERLIN, MARYLAND)
THIS WAS THE 1ST TIME I EVER PLANTED WALA WALA ONIONS. I HAD 122 THAT I PLANTED AND 109 GREW GREAT. STRANGE I HAVE 8 COMING UP RIGHT NOW IN OCT 2010. EVEN THE SMALLEST SEED SET PRODUCES NICE FLAVORFUL ONIONS. AND THEY SEEM TO BE KEEPING GOOD SO FAR. ONE NOTE; DO NOT STORE POTATOES AND ONIONS TOGETHER, IT PRODUCES A GAS THAT SPOILS BOTH.

WW Onions are the Best
Reviewed By: Erica (Waitsburg, Washington)
The Walla Walla Onion is the best onion I have ever come across. I am not much of an onion lover but I really like the way these onions give flavor without the bite. I highly recommend these onions and have them in the ground at my house since they were just little starts as of the end of April and they are doing beautifully, and I actually look forward to reaping what I've sown. You can't go wrong with the Walla Walla Sweet Onion.
