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.

Texas 1015 SuperSweet Onion Seed
(110 days) Allium cepa Released in 1983. The Texas 1015 onion was developed by the legendary Dr. Leonard Pike of Texas A&M University, it's name derives from the planting date in Texas (October 15). Texas 1015s were grown in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas and took some 10 years to produce, this onion was dubbed the "million dollar baby" because of the enormous cost and amount of time it took to develop this exceptionally sweet onion. 1015's have flattened yellow bulbs with rounded shoulders. Texas 1015 is the sweetest of the sweet onion varieties and I remember my mother always buying them at the local market where I grew up in Texas. The bigger it gets the sweeter it gets. Texas 1015 onions can weigh up to a pound or more! Stores up to two months if cured properly.
The Texas 1015 is considered a Short Day onion, but many times it takes longer for bulbs to develop, so it can be used in Intermediate and Long Day areas. Has been successfully grown from Mexico to Ohio. Pink Root Rot Resistant.
Remember to add bone meal before planting onions. Bone meal contains phosporous which is essential for excellent development.
I started my seeds in seed trays but they did not germinate. I watered adequately but nothing came up.
The onion seeds arrived fast. I planted as I had seen on several videos. Germination was good. But the plants just didnt thrive. Not the seed or companies fault, my lack of culture of doing them from seed. They made it to about 3 icnhes, then bent over and fizzled out.
Onions not going well
I have started these twice in the house and both times they have sprouted good but they get about three inches tall and they fall over and die. It has happened with both these and the red onions
