Onion Pickling Paris Silverskin is a very popular and quick-growing variety for crisp, sweet, white pickling onions, often known as 'cocktail' onions. They will grow well in almost any soil and prefer a sunny position. Matures in only 8-12 weeks.
Sow all year round, 5mm deep, in rows 15cm apart. No thinning is necessary but keep plants well watered, particularly in dry weather. Grows well in almost any soil, but grows best in well dug and manured ground. Seedlings emerge 10-14 days.
Harvest when onions are the size of marbles for the best pickles. To pickle onions, peel onions and place in a bowl of brine (85g of salt to 475ml of water). Leave for 24hrs, pour off brine solution, rinse onions thoroughly in cold water, shake dry, pack tightly into clean jars and cover with cold pickling white vinegar.
Make successive sowings every 4-6 weeks for a continuous supply of sweet, white pickling onions.
