Onion Senshyu Yellow. One of the best Japanese over wintering varieties available. A very reliable heavy yielding main crop variety producing straw coloured semi-globe shaped bulbs of high quality by early July. This variety is bred specifically for autumn sowing to mature the following July and is not suitable for mid spring sowings.
