I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Fort Bragg Onion
Fort Bragg Onion (120 days)
Sustainably Grown Seed
Intermediate Day Variety. Large yellow globe onion that performs well here on the Pacific Coast. About 4-6" across and weigh 1/2-1 lbs. Robust, almost round, pancake shaped with some of the onions weighing over 1 lb easy. It is a good keeper storing for about 3 months. I'm being modest here. I harvested in November, it is March and I still have onions in the garage that are good as the day they were pulled.
It is important to dry your onions in the garden first for proper storage. Pull them up on a sunny day and let them dry in the sun for two days to cure. Then store them.
Onion seed has a short shelf life so keep it cool and dry.
