- 1. **Location:** Plant White Grano Onions in a sunny location in well-drained soil. Ensure the soil is loose and fertile to allow for bulb development.
- 2. **Planting:** Onions can be grown from seeds, sets (small bulbs), or transplants. Plant onion sets or transplants about 1 inch deep and 4-6 inches apart in rows, leaving 12-18 inches between rows.
- 3. **Watering:** Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Onions require consistent moisture for optimal bulb growth, especially during the bulbing stage.
- 4. **Fertilization:** Fertilize with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer when planting and again when the bulbs begin to swell. Avoid excessive nitrogen as it can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of bulb development.
- 5. **Thinning:** Thin the onions as they grow, leaving space for bulbs to reach their full size. You can use the thinnings as green onions in your cooking.
- 6. **Mulching:** Mulch around the onion plants to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
- 7. **Harvesting:** White Grano Onions are ready for harvest when the tops have mostly fallen over and started to dry. Gently lift the bulbs from the soil, and let them cure for a few weeks in a dry, airy location.
- 8. **Storage:** After curing, store White Grano Onions in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. They can be stored for several months.
