A superb variety which is a strong grower and matures very well. Grow in full sun, in soil that has not been freshly composted. Sturon produce uniform globe bulbs with a golden even skin colour. This variety will store very well and retain its lovely flavour. Plant the bulbs from February to April and expect to harvest from October onwards. If storing before planting keep them in a cool airy place.
Plant the tips of the bulbs above soil level and at 10cm intervals with rows about 30cms apart. Grow onions with mint as the smell of the mint will confuse the onion fly.
Tip: Avoid planting in frehly manured soil and they will benefit from a full sun position.
Aspect: As much sun as possible (not so good in shady areas)
Soil type: Free draining fertile soils.
