How to Produce a Large Onion

Plant the Onion set in early spring, in a sunny area, and in well cultivated ground. Plant the onion sets 3 inches apart. Onion sets should be planted about 1-2 inches deep. Water onions generously at planting, and weekly as needed. When the top falls over, and is fully grown, dry the onion on the top of the ground for several days. When the onion has dried, remove it – and keep it in a dry, cool place.
