Australian Brown (1897)

C.C. Morse & Co. obtained five pounds of Brown Spanish onion seed in 1894 from Australia and sold it to W. Atlee Burpee in 1897. W. Atlee Burpee then renamed the variety Australian Brown. Australian Brown is the most reliable onion I grow. I always had a problem trying to grow large onions in my clay soil and short growing season until I came across Australian Brown. It produces uniform globes with pungent yellow flesh and is a great keeper. A great onion that I could not be without!

Early Yellow Globe (1930's)

The 1935 Isbells Seed catalogue had this to say about this excellent early onion. "Here is a new early type of yellow globe onion of Connecticut origin which matures fully three weeks ahead of Southport and other similar sorts. This is a fine globe shaped onion with a beautiful yellow color. It is a splendid winter keeper and, because of its thick skin, keeps in storage better than most early sorts. The bulbs do not quite reach the size of some of the later sorts but it yields nearly as well and is a more sure yielder because it is earlier." Highly recommended for gardeners in short season climates that have problems with onions maturing, heavy soils or anyone wanting an early storage onion.
