description for "Onions: Allium cepa 'White Granex'"

Short day onion 'White Granex' is a white Vidalia type. This variety has the same characteristics as the yellow variety, but with a pearly-white flesh. It is also recommended for southern growers. Sometimes known as the 'Miss Society'. Short day onions are recommended for southern states where temperatures are normally warmer year round. The short day varieties will start making bulbs early in the year when there are only 10 to 12 hours of daylight. Because they have a higher concentration of water as opposed to solid fiber content, they do not store well and should be eaten fresh. -- 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.
