description for "Onions: Allium cepa 'Walla Walla'"

'Walla Walla' is the pride of Washington State! A sweet, long-day, yellow onion that makes large bulbs in northern and midwestern states. Does not store as well as other long-day varieties. Long day onions grow better in northern states because they need 14 to 16 hours of daylight to bulb satisfactorily. Long day varieties generally have a more pungent flavor than short day. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman

History:

Allium cepa has been cultivated throughout such a large portion of human history, that the true species is no longer known in the wild.
