Perhaps the best tasting red onion of all. Excellent mild and sweet flavor. Torpedo onions are a perfect addition to any home garden as they require less space and can be grown closer together. That being said, they are an excellent choice for small space gardens and do well tucked in between other plants here and there. Performs well in cool weather and are first tolerant but also do well for us all summer in our hot environment. We mulch as well as plant them in a part sun location in our hot dessert climate of the west. Great storage capabilities for a red variety, about 3 months in proper conditions but best flavor if enjoyed within one month of harvesting. We recommend succession planting of these beauties to have a steady fresh supply most of the year. 70-100 Days allium cepa

We do our best to ensure your order's safe and timely arrival. I can always provide proof that your order was shipped and the manner of which it was shipped. Due to large volume of sales during the growing season, I cannot always automatically provide a tracking number on United States orders. It is just too time consuming. I will however gladly send that info. along to you upon request within 48 hours. Sooner if time allows.
As far as International packages, the USPS does not offer a reasonably priced tracking system for those packages so you are ordering at your own risk. I can prove I send your package, I cannot guarantee they will make it to you through your countries customs. In the event that your order does not arrive, I will gladly refund the purchase price of the seeds, but not the actual shipping charges. PLEASE check your countries own policies on bringing foreign seeds into your homeland. There are countries that do not allow seeds and plants in.

***SHIPPING TO WORK ADDRESSES: I prefer not to ship to a person;s work address as more times than not, the packages are returned to me as undeliverable. If a package is returned to me from a work address or an old address you forgot to change, I will kindly ask you to cover the additional charges of re-sending your package.

We prefer Credit Card and Paypal as to process your order without delay.

**If we sell out of something you order, we will notify you as soon as the issue is detected. I may even make a comparable suggestion, a favorite variety of mine. Never a variety I think may not be suitable to your area or of lesser quality. We will give you the option of choosing something else or obtaining a refund. If we do not hear back from you within 48 hours we will issue the refund and send the remainder your order.
