Onion 'Australian Brown'
This strain of Australian Brown was selected from a popular market garden variety grown near Colac in the 1940's. The thick brown skin make it one of the best storing varieties.
All onions require rich, well drained soil. Onion seed can be sown directly into the garden, however many gardeners fiind it more effective to sow into punnets and transplant. It is essential to keep onions weed free. Harvest onions grown for their bulbs (not spring onions) when the leaves wither and collapse.
