Salad Onions

Tozer Seeds are continuing to develop new salad onion varieties in the Allium cepa, A. fistulosum and the interspecific species. A. cepa varieties such as Ramrod, Eiffel and the red Apache have proven to provide growers with reliable crops. Our aim is to further develop an improved Guardsman and increase the assortment of A. fistulosum varieties in the near future.

    Eiffel

    A white Lisbon salad onion type but with distinctive stiff upright leaves which shed water very effectively. This makes Eiffel less susceptible to disease at difficult times of the season. It is slow to bulb, especially in the long days of summer. A very versatile variety, which although predominantly for spring and summer production, will overwinter with careful crop husbandry. An ideal companion for Ramrod, especially during the summer cropping period.

    Ramrod

    A distinct Tozer Seeds salad onion which proves itself in the marketplace. It is very versatile, being used for both spring and autumn production. Ramrod is also winter hardy, which makes it a good variety for drilling in the autumn. Additionally, it can be used for producing larger, bolder type salad onions, especially if overwintered and left to develop in the early spring. It is very popular and a superb stablemate to Eiffel.

    Guardsman

    A very distinct and innovative variety from the Tozer Seeds breeding programme. Salad Onion Guardsman combines the non-bulbing qualities of A.fistulosum varieties and the reduced pungency qualities of A.cepa types. A vigorous root system helps to maintain the strong, upright, dark blue-green leaves which make this variety not only suitable for the summer cropping period but also ideal for autumn crops when disease can be a particular problem.
