Characteristics of Red Creole Onions:

  1. Rich, Spicy Flavor: The Red Creole Onion is known for its zesty and savory taste, adding a bold and spicy kick to your favorite dishes. Perfect for adding depth to salsas, stews, and salads, these onions will quickly become a staple in your kitchen.

  2. Vibrant Red Color: With their striking red outer layers and white to pale pink interior, Red Creole Onions add an appealing pop of color to any dish. Use them raw or cooked to create eye-catching meals that are as visually appealing as they are tasty.

  3. Excellent Storage Qualities: Red Creole Onions boast a long shelf life, making them ideal for storage. When properly cured and stored, they can last up to 3-4 months, ensuring a steady supply of onions throughout winter.

  4. Disease-Resistant: These onions are highly resistant to diseases like pink root and botrytis leaf blight, ensuring a healthy and vigorous crop.


  1. Timing: Start your Red Creole Onion seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date in your area. This will give the onions ample time to grow and mature before being transplanted outdoors.

  2. Soil Preparation: Use a high-quality, well-draining seed-starting mix with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Ensure the mix is moistened before sowing seeds.

  3. Planting: Sow the seeds ¼ inch deep, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Place the seed tray in a warm area with a consistent temperature of 65-75°F (18-24°C) to encourage germination.

  4. Germination Time: Red Creole Onion seeds typically germinate within 7-10 days. Once the seedlings have sprouted, move them to a sunny location or under grow lights for at least 12 hours of light each day.


  1. Transplanting: When the seedlings have 3-4 leaves and outdoor temperatures are consistently above 45°F (7°C), transplant them into your garden. Space the plants about 4-6 inches apart in rows 12-18 inches apart.

  2. Soil and Fertilization: Red Creole Onions prefer well-draining, fertile soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Apply a balanced fertilizer at the time of planting and every 4-6 weeks afterward.

  3. Watering: Provide consistent moisture to your onions, watering them deeply once or twice a week. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to bulb rot.

  4. Weeding: Keep the area around your onions weed-free to prevent competition for nutrients and water.


  1. Bulb Formation: Red Creole Onions typically take 100-120 days to mature. When the tops of the onions begin to yellow and fall over, it's a sign that the bulbs are ready to be harvested.

  2. Harvesting: Gently loosen the soil around the onions using a garden fork and carefully lift the bulbs out of the ground.

  3. Curing: For optimal storage, cure the onions by placing them in a warm, dry, and well-ventilated area for 2-3 weeks. Then, spread the onions out, allowing them to dry evenly and ensuring that the outer layers form a protective skin.

  1. Storage: Once cured, store your Red Creole Onions in a cool, dry, dark place with good air circulation. Mesh bags or slatted crates work well for storage. Regularly inspect the onions and remove any that show signs of rot or spoilage to maintain the overall quality of your stored crop.
