Please recommend COLOSSAL long-day onion varieties

12 years ago

I live at 41 degrees N latitude in the Midwest, and want to grow COLOSSAL onions. I've got onion culture pretty much down and grow my own transplants every year. Now I need recommendations on varieties that produce, on average, onions 5+ inches in diameter. So far, I've got Alisa Craig Exhibition, Big Daddy, and Walla Walla on my list. Just so happens they're all yellow, but would be very interested in colossal whites and reds as well.

In your recommendation, please indicate whether the onion variety is mild or pungent, its color, storage capacity, and where you got the seed. Thanks!
