Warrior Bunching Onion is a fast-growing bunching onion that can be grown in spring or fall. This green onion, or spring onion, produces 1/2" diameter bulbs that are crisp with nice green tops. This variety holds well in the field and can be allowed to get larger for a longer harvesting window. Warrior Bunching Onion grows great in containers or in-ground gardens. These green onions are delicious when eaten raw, sauteed or grilled.
Warrior Bunching Onion can be direct-seeded or transplanted. For direct-seeding, plant seeds 1″ apart along the row with a row spacing of 24″. Warrior 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.
For transplanting, plant several seeds per cell in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Once the green stems reach 6-8″ in length and/or they can be easily pulled from the seed trays, the transplants are ready to go in the ground. Transplant each cell 2-4″ apart along the row with a row spacing of 1 foot. If drip irrigation is used, onions may be planted on double rows with drip irrigation in the middle. We suggest burying the drip tape 3-4″ deep and planting on both sides of the tape.
Onions are heavy feeders and will require significant nutrient inputs throughout their lifespan. We recommend feeding them with our 20-20-20 and Ammonium Sulfate 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 Ammonium Sulfate fertilizer. Side dress or inject 1 cup per 20 feet of linear row every 3-4 weeks after transplanting.
