Product Description:

90 days. Kick off the planting season with this early maturing, medium-sized, yellow onion. Relative to other sets, Forum produces bolt-resistant plants that provide tender green onions early in the season. The glossy, slightly flattened, 2 inch round globes are top quality for cooking. Onions will keep up to 3 months after harvest. For best success, plant Forum sets in early spring, prior to your last frost and as soon as your soil can be worked. Long-day variety. Approximately 100, ½–¾ inch sets per pound.


Not available to ID, Malheur county in OR, or outside the contiguous US.
