Onion, Texas Early Grano

Availability: In stock (4)

Approx. 300 seeds.

This sweet, white short-day onion has been proudly grown in the Lone Star State since 1944. The Grano onion was originally introduced to the U.S. in 1925 from Valencia, Spain. In the 1930s the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station began an onion breeding program; the Grano was trialled and selected for early maturation and extra-sweet flavor, and thus the Texas Early Grano was born. These extra-sweet and early Vidalia-type onions have a thin skin and supremely mild flavor, so sweet they can be eaten like an apple!
