At MayFord, we’re constantly on the lookout for exceptional varieties to enhance your gardening experience, and we’re excited to introduce our latest gem: Onion Caledon Globe. As passionate gardeners ourselves, we understand the excitement of discovering new flavours and forms, and Caledon Globe is the onion variety to take your gardening journey to new heights.


Unveiling Caledon Globe: A Round of Flavour and Beauty

Caledon Globe joins our esteemed collection of onions, which already claims popular picks like Red Creole and Texas Grano. As its name suggests, Caledon Globe showcases the classic round onion shape that has become a staple in kitchens worldwide. While these varieties are typically found in retail supermarkets in shades of brown, white, or red, Caledon Globe brings a fresh twist to your garden with its rich and captivating hues.


A Well-Known Favourite: Open Pollination at Its Best

Known for its robust performance in the garden, Caledon Globe has earned its reputation as a beloved Open Pollinated variety. This tried-and-trusted gem thrives in the home garden. Its adaptability and resilience make it an excellent choice for both novice gardeners and seasoned horticulturists.



Timing is Everything: When and How to Sow

The optimal time to sow Caledon Globe seeds is now, spanning from late winter into early spring. However, to ensure the best results, we recommend holding off on sowing until the late summer through autumn period, extending into winter. Patience is key, as this calculated timing ensures the onion’s development aligns with the natural rhythm of the seasons.


From Seed to Harvest: Cultivation Essentials

As you embark on your journey with Caledon Globe, keep in mind that this variety follows a longer growth trajectory, with a maturation period spanning 180 to 240 days. To achieve those perfect, wholesome bulbs, abundant daylight hours and warm weather are essential. The end result? Straw-colored skin with a pale-yellow flesh, a tempting combination that promises an explosion of flavour in your culinary creations.


Planting Options: The Choice is Yours

Flexibility is the name of the game with Caledon Globe. Whether you prefer starting your seeds in trays for later transplantation or directly sowing them into the ground, this variety accommodates your gardening style.



We invite you to embark on a gardening venture like no other with Onion Caledon Globe. As part of our MayFord family, you’re not just purchasing seeds – you’re investing in the joy of cultivation, the thrill of discovery, and the satisfaction of savouring the fruits (or in this case, bulbs!) of your labour.
