3rd week of March?

That would be risky here. I find that transplant losses drop to near zero with bigger transplants. I usually set them out about the 3rd week of April, dependent, mostly, on soil conditions...if the frost hasn't gone out yet, you're not good to go. They stand there and sulk for two weeks, then take off...

I haven't decided on an ultimate favorite variety. Copra is maybe on the list, but there are others. WE can usually keep onions in dry storage until we either run out (and start using the potato onions) or into early summer (9-10 months!) with the best storers. Candy didn't hold up as well as others.

FWIW, Stokes has the best selection in Onion seeds.
a day without fresh homegrown tomatoes is like... ...sigh
