carolyn k, northern growers meaning long day. This year , due to space constraints, I grew only Candy Red and Candy purchased from Dixondale via our local nursery that buys the plant bundles and resells them. Candy is not a storage onion. I decided to try something that I could not buy in the supermarket, and I was pleased with the milder taste they had.

In the past, I've grown Copra and a few others from seed (can't remember at the moment). I used to grow storage onions but I will no longer continue to do that and instead devote space to varieties not available at the grocery.
