Crookham continues it’s strong line up of long day onions by adding Defender and Epic.

Defender is a main season yellow long day for the Western United States. It is a vigorous plant with strong erect tops and roots that give it a strong canopy. Defender has a high percentage of single centers, good ring separation, and uniformity in bulb shape with a rich bronze colored scale. Defender can store for the long term with 6+ months of storage giving growers the highest degree of market flexibility. https://www.crookham.com/products/us/defender

Epic is an early main long season with a dark copper colored scale. It performs exceptionally well under overhead water and forms a large jumbo bulb that stores well. It has a very high single center rate and can be used effectively for processing. Epic has done well in adaptive trials in the Northwest, Midwest and Western US.  https://www.crookham.com/products/us/epic
