The Parade Bunching Onion is an open-pollinated variety that produces some of the most uniform, upright stalks of any bunching onion we've seen. These incredibly vigorous plants don't produce a bulb and have a spectacular mild onion flavor and minimal disease issues. The dark green stalks make for a great option for spring onions or, because of their extra long white base, to pull out of the ground and harvest as scallions. The Parade Bunching Onion will grow great in containers, raised beds, or in the field. It is a mild non-bulbing bunching onion variety with clear white shanks and dark green foliage. The foliage is upright with little disease issues. This strong variety produces a uniform harvest that works easily for bunching at the market or direct fresh use.

Parade Bunching Onion can be direct-seeded. For direct seeding, plant Seeds 1″ apart along the row with a row spacing of 24″. Parade Bunching Onion Seeds can be planted with our Hoss Garden Seeder. We recommend using a #1 seed plate and modifying the hole size slightly to accommodate the onion variety being planted. For denser plantings, more holes may need to be drilled to accommodate a thicker spacing.

Growing Information

Onions are heavy feeders and will require significant nutrient inputs throughout their lifespan. We recommend feeding them with our 20-20-20 and Calcium Nitrate fertilizers. Fertilize with 20-20-20 shortly after transplanting. The phosphorous and potassium in the 20-20-20 fertilizer will help to promote solid root development, while the nitrogen will promote vegetative growth. Once transplants are established, we recommend side-dressing or injecting with our Calcium Nitrate fertilizer. Side dress or inject 1 cup per 20 feet of linear row every 3-4 weeks after transplanting.
