Bulbing onions probably originated in the region of the world now known as Pakistan. The Egyptians were said to have built the pyramids on a diet that included a generous supply of onions.
Onions have been an important food item in Egypt since 3200 BC.
Onions came to the New World with the Spaniards and shortly thereafter we discovered how great they were in a soup and on a hamburger. The rest is history!

Yellow Sweet Spanish onions are gardeners’ favourites because they grow quickly without much effort.
Water every couple days and fertilize about three weeks after you plant them.
You will be able to harvest your onions less than four months after planting.
Onions, like most vegetables, thrive in rich organic soil. Prior to planting, work 2 to 4 in. (5 to 10 cm) of compost or humus into the soil. Plant onion plants 4 to 6 inches apart.
Try to be careful about the fertilizers you use for onions. Onions tend to be more pungent when grown on soils with a high sulphur content.
Choose a nitrate-based fertilizer over a sulphate-based fertilizer.
The fertilizer bag, even on all-purpose fertilizers, 12-24-12 for example, will indicate the components used to formulate the fertilizer.
Onions may need lots of moisture at the beginning, but less when the bulbs are approaching full size.
When the tops begin to fall over naturally, it’s time to pull the onions up.
Members of the onion family generally give a very obvious signal when they are ready to harvest.
The tops fall over and the tips of the leaves start to turn brown. In addition, the bulbs are full size.
Pull the onions, shake off any soil, but do not wash them or pull off any outside wrapper leaves.
Store them in a cool, dry, shaded area to cure for several days or up to 2 weeks if the weather is dry and not too hot. Then clip off the roots and tops leaving about one inch of the stem and brush off any remaining soil.
