Onions are easily grown from seed. They can be used for their green stems or the popular bulbs that form when the onion matures. Onions may be mild flavored or pungent, depending upon the variety. Cooked or raw onions may be used to accent any meal. Onions produce bulbs according to day lengths, short day onions produce when there are fewer hours of daylight and long day onions produce when there are more hours of daylight.
Each packet contains one gram of seed or about 300 seeds. Onion seeds do not store well, germination will reduce significantly after one or two seasons.
