New Fen Globe yields a heavier crop than lots of other onion varieties when it comes to harvest time in late summer and early autumn on account of its longer growing period.

Grown as a regular-sized crop, every pack of approximately 75 sets should produces 22.5kg (50lbs) or more of top quality onions.

For onions with impressive size reaching up to 0.5 kg (1lb) in weight and making an excellent showbench specimen we recommend you read the helpful advice of the National Vegetable Society for growing champion-sized onions. Simply click on their Growing for Show Advice page.

Enjoy big harvests from late summer and into early autumn; we recommend you give time to dry the bulbs naturally before storing them. Leave them outdoors for a week uncovered if rain is not due, and covered if rain is forecasted. Kept in a cool, dry and airy place, your stored bulbs will stay in good condition right through to the following May.

Plant in free-draining soil in early March, (don't worry about them bolting- we heat-treat your bulbs to prevent this from happening) allowing the roots to establish well while there is still plenty of moisture in the soil. This gives them a head-start and steels them against summer drought should it arise.
