You can be confident of show bench success with these onion plants, they are fast becoming a ‘must have’ for anyone wishing to exhibit at local shows through to National Championships.
Our unique Exhibition Onion Plant collection comprises of a regular National Championship winner, an almost legendary re-introduction that’s causing great excitement amongst show growers and a new, large onion variety ‘Exhibition’ tipped for big things.
Individually modular grown to minimise root disturbance, we nurture them over winter and manage all stages of production for you. At the transplanting stage (around the middle of April), they are carefully hand packed, wrapped and delivered to you for immediate planting. You’ll also receive a growing guide to help you get the best possible results.
The collection consists of 60 module grown plants, 20 each of:
Onion Exhibition-This splendid new variety is well named, as we predict a bright future for it on the showbench - while its mild flavour and crisp texture mean it will also be in demand in the kitchen. The golden-skinned, well-shaped bulbs can reach 6in across when well grown, and are most attractive.
Onion Tough Ball F1-Tough Ball is the mainstay of the <250g onion class at shows throughout the country. A winning entry in 2 classes at this years’ NVS Championships, with G Wagstaffe picking up first prize in the <250g class. As well as being the preferred choice of exhibition growers, it is a very tasty variety producing incredibly uniform onions with a strong skin and crisp firm flesh. High yielding and resistant to bolting.
Onion Fasto F1--This variety represents the ‘holy grail of onion breeding’ and it fast becoming the new and improved replacement for Tasco which has been withdrawn. Widely tested and put through its paces over the last few years, Fasto has demonstrated strong early establishment and vigour, excellent storage and is expected to become a legendary exhibition variety in the coming years. An early maturing variety which produces high quality, uniform bulbs with silky skins and a golden yellow colour, lovely flavour and a good crunch. Excellent for eating as well as exhibition use.
