Description

Calibra Certified Organic Onion transplants

Calibra Certified Organic Onion transplants are a mild, sweet Spanish-style onion that are easy to grow.  Similar in sweetness to “Candy”, Calibra has less moisture and the 3-4″ bulbs are more suitable for longer storage. A long-intermediate day onion, Calibra is well adapted for Mid-Northern states, latitudes from Maine to Northern Texas.

  • ONION DETAILS:
    • Yellow, globe shape with golden tan colored skins
    • EASY to grow
    • Long-Intermediate Day –  produces well with 12 to 13 hours of sunlight
    • Grows best in latitudes from Northern Texas to Maine
    • Long Storing – 4-6 months with the right storage conditions
    • 85-100 days from transplant
    • 3″-4″ bulbs
  • TRANSPLANT INFORMATION: Our organic onion transplants are dormant when shipped. It is normal for them to be pale & slightly dry due to dormancy & shipping. In fact, onions are very hardy & can live off of the bulb for approximately three weeks. Generally, we recommend planting within one week. These healthy transplants will thrive if well cared for. For your gardening success, we have switched from selling potted onion plants to onion transplants .
  • SHIPPING INFORMATION: We ship all dormant transplants beginning in early April. Our onions are well-adapted for mid-northern states. If your region requires earlier planting, consider our Naturally-Grown Onion Sets or you may want to source your onion transplants from a local nursery. For more information, see our Keene Garlic Seasonal Order Shipping Guide.

Basic Onion Growing Info

Sun Requirement: Onions require full sun – the more the better! Therefore, avoid planting next to crops that might shade your onions.
Soil Fertility: Onions prefer soil with a pH between 6.2 and 6.8. If your soil is too acidic, add ground limestone; if it is too alkaline, add peat moss. Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer is essential for growing healthy onions, especially if your soil fertility is low. For the best growth and yield, onions need fertilizer at planting time and additional side dressing.
Planting: Onions grow best on raised beds or raised rows at least 4″ high. Typically, onions can be planted as early as 4 to 6 weeks before the last estimated spring frost.
***For detailed instructions on how to grow onions from planting to fertilizing, all the way to harvest/storage, see this post on our blog:
