How to Grow Red Burgundy Onion Seeds

Red Burgundy onions are a popular variety of onion that is known for its dark red color and mild flavor. They are relatively easy to grow, making them a good choice for beginner gardeners.

To grow Red Burgundy onions from seed, follow these steps:

  1. Start the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch deep in a seed tray or pot filled with seed starting mix. Keep the soil moist and warm (65-75 degrees Fahrenheit). The seeds should germinate within 7-14 days.
  2. Transplant the seedlings outdoors after the last frost date. Harden off the seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions for a week or two before transplanting. Space the seedlings 6-8 inches apart in rows 12-18 inches apart.
  3. Water the onions regularly, especially during hot weather. They need about 1 inch of water per week.
  4. Fertilize the onions every few weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  5. Harvest the onions when they are mature and the tops start to fall over. This usually takes about 120-150 days after transplanting.

Tips for growing Red Burgundy onions:

  • Onions need full sun to grow their best.
  • Onions prefer well-drained soil. If your soil is heavy clay, you can improve drainage by adding sand or compost.
  • Onions are heavy feeders, so it is important to fertilize them regularly.
  • Onions are susceptible to a number of pests and diseases, such as onion thrips, onion maggots, and onion smut. Inspect your plants regularly for signs of pests or diseases and treat them promptly if necessary.

Harvesting and storing Red Burgundy onions:

  • To harvest Red Burgundy onions, simply pull them up out of the ground.
  • Cure the onions by placing them in a cool, dry place for a few weeks.
