Candy Onion Plants

Frist time trying grow onions, they came in a little late and I had to separate the plants by doing so they went through a dormant stage but now leaves are beginning to stand straight up and turning back to green color. love GrowJoy plants.

Great packaging

So far I'm very pleased with this plant. It arrived packaged perfectly and has taken well to its new home in the garden. Can't wait to have fresh onions from our garden.

I have been buying these onions for years. They arrive at my door, I plant them in the ground. Some water, fertilizer and sunshine and they just grow and grow and grow. It does not get any better.

Candy Onion plants

I have ordered, planted, harvested and eaten these onions for the last 3 years. They are shipped at the correct time for planting, they arrive in excellent condition and when planted correctly they grow exceptionally well. I have tried both onion seeds and onion sets. These onion plants are are far better than seeds or sets.
