The Onion Walla Walla, 'Allium cepa', is one of the sweetest and juiciest onions you will ever taste. They can be eaten raw like an apple. For just plain sweet and delicious flavor, this onion is one of the best. It is best eaten fresh and does not store well. It is an intermediate onion and will produce a bulb in most areas of the USA.The Walla Walla onion should be planted in the early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Because the size of the bulb is directly related to how big the foliage gets, it is recommended to start the Walla Walla inside 8 to 12 weeks before last frost date. Onions prefer light well drained soil and with lots of organic matter. They should be kept evenly moist and not allowed to dry out. It is very important to keep onions weeded. Note: If the bulb pushes itself out of the ground, cover it with mulch or straw, not soil.
Scientific Name : Allium cepa
