These onions were started from sets. They (the Gardening Gurus of Lore) say that onions started from sets do not store as well, so I'll have to see if these onions are even capable of getting me through the year. We have tried to grow onions from seed twice and have failed both times. We actually have bad luck with seeds started indoors. But I'll go into that in more detail in a post entitled something like, "I Hate Starting Seeds Indoors; Why Can't We Just Buy Our Plants From A Nursery And Plant Them On Memorial Day Like Everyone Else," or something.
All in all, I'm happy with these onions. They look like real onions, which is exciting. More than likely they taste like real onions because they smell like real onions. They might be a little to few and a little small, but they're my onions and I love them.
