Our Short Day Onion Plant Collection includes a bundle each (50-70 plants) of three different short-day onion varieties that perform great in the southern states. 

Short Day Onion Plant Collection Varieties:

Texas 1015 SuperSweet Onion Plants

Our Texas 1015 SuperSweet Onion Plants have a yellow skin, off-white flesh, and are some of the sweetest onions you'll find! This variety was developed by Texas A&M University and are a favorite amongst gardeners in the southern states. They produce massive onions that usually store for 2-3 months.

Red Hamburger Onion Plants

Our Red Hamburger Onion Plants produce large red onions that are perfect for slicing! These onions have a crisp flavor and are a great topping for your favorite burger, sandwich, or salad. Red Hamburger Onions are slightly flattened and usually store for 4-6 weeks after harvest.

Crystal White Bermuda Onion Plants

Our Crystal White Bermuda Onion Plants produce small to medium white onions that are commonly used for cocktail or pearl onions. These can be harvested early to make small pickling onions, or allowed to reach full maturity. Crystal White Bermuda is an heirloom variety that has been a favorite of southern gardeners for decades.

Short Day Onion Plant Collection Growing Tips:

Our Short Day Onion Plant Collection should be planted in late winter, approximately four to six weeks before your average last frost date. Established onion plants can tolerate temperatures down to 20°F, but young onion transplants will be more sensitive. Place the onion transplants 6" apart in your raised bed or in-ground garden and water them well for best results.

Onion plants are heavy feeders and will perform best in fertile soils. If your soils are not naturally fertile, you'll need to fertilize the plants to grow large onions. Feed the onions a balanced fertilizer (relatively equal parts of N-P-K) at planting or shortly after. Once the plants establish and start growing, feed them a couple times with a nitrogen-based fertilizer and watch them grow!

Onion Plants from Steele Plant Company

Farm Fresh Onion Plants

Our onion plants are field grown to ensure the highest-quality onion plants for our customers.

After being harvested from the field, our onion plants are cleaned, trimmed, boxed, and shipped to you. We want our customers to have the freshest plants so they can be successful growing their own onions.

When your onion plants arrive, open the box immediately and unwrap the individual onion plant bundles. We recommend planting them as soon as possible, but they'll be fine in a cool dry area for one to two weeks.

  • Onion plants will be shipped during the windows listed on the shipping schedule, in accordance with the colors on the shipping map. Please note that our onion plant shipping schedule differs from our sweet potato plant shipping schedule. If you order sweet potato plants and onion plants, you'll receive them at different times.
