A detailed description of the mid-early shetan onion
Shetana - this is the name of one of the varieties of sevka, successfully grown in almost any garden. It is popular due to its high yield, excellent taste, excellent preservation during the winter period.... In order to successfully grow this vegetable and get high yields, it is necessary to have the technological features of its cultivation from the moment of planting to the very harvest. The description and characteristics of this type of onion are given below.
Description and characteristics of the Shetan onion variety
The vegetable is considered medium early. When using seeds, the growing season is up to three months, the use of seed will allow you to harvest a little earlier... The shetana variety owes its appearance to Czech breeding specialists.
The onion is distinguished by its rounded shape, medium density of the pulp. Weighs about forty to fifty grams if grown from seed. Sevok allows the bulb to gain twice the mass. The scales are colored straw-yellowish.
The taste is semi-sharp, it is recommended to use a variety of dishes and preserves.
The yield level depends on the climatic conditions in which the onion is grown.... The central regions of Russia allow harvesting from fifty to sixty centners of vegetables per hectare. Other districts give out two hundred - two hundred and fifty centners.
Winter vegetable, has a good ripeness, high keeping quality. If storage is organized according to all requirements, then almost ninety percent of the crop can retain its marketable appearance until the onset of the spring season.
Shetana perfectly resists fusarium rot, but is capable of being affected by peronosporosis.
Time to board
This onion variety can be planted in spring and autumn. In the first case, sowing is carried out after the soil has warmed up well enough so that the onions are not exposed to late night frosts. Autumn sowing is considered more effective, it is performed a few weeks before the onset of the first frost... The planting material has time to take root, does not germinate.
Shetana is considered a sun-loving variety.
This feature must be taken into account when choosing a landing site. Otherwise, growth will slow down, taste differences will worsen.
When choosing a site for sowing onions, it is necessary to take into account that the land should be loamy and loose, well lit. With an increased level of acidity, lime should be added to the soil..
It will be better if the predecessors are legumes or nightshade crops. Refrain from planting sevok in former garlic, asparagus or cucumber beds. A good solution would be to place carrots in the neighborhood, which with its tops will scare away many harmful parasites.
The planting material is being moved. For sowing, medium-sized onions are determined, even, without visible damage and traces of decay.... They are warmed up during the day.
Onion seeds must be soaked in heated water and dried. They are planted immediately in the ground at the end of April or in the first days of May.
Taking care of onions after planting
You will have to arrange care for the onion. The soil must be loosened before the first shoots appear.... This will prevent the appearance of a crust on the surface of the earth, which will accelerate germination. Thereafter, this procedure is performed every two to three weeks. At the same time, weeds are removed.
Fertilizing components must be applied before planting and during the entire growing season. At the time of digging the beds, it is necessary to add organic matter, for which chicken droppings, mullein can be used... The first feeding with organic substances dissolved in water is performed when seedlings appear. The second time it is necessary to nourish the plants when the foliage height reaches fifteen centimeters. It uses a mineral composition that has a lot of nitrogen. Potash formulations are added at the time of the onion mass growth.
Watering is carried out at intervals of two times a month., stop completely three to four weeks before harvest.
Diseases and their prevention
The onion variety perfectly resists fusarium rot, but suffers from peronosporosis (downy mildew). The disease looks like a gray bloom on the feather and vegetative area of the plant. At the initial stage, yellowish spots are formed, then spores of a grayish-purple hue appear. Plaque is especially noticeable in the morning when dew falls. Such a fungal disease is considered active and manifests itself strongly in the wet season.
As a preventive measure, onions are planted in well-lit beds, the rows are formed correctly, the plantings do not have thickened areas. After harvesting, the beds are completely dug up, this place for planting onions is planned in three to four years. At this time, it is recommended to plant on such beds:
In the case when plants are affected by a fungus, it is necessary to reduce watering, do not use nitrogen-containing components for fertilization, replacing them with potash or phosphorus ones. In addition, spraying is organized, for which Bordeaux one percent liquid or Polycarbacin is used. True, such processing will lead to the fact that the feather will become unusable for food, but the bulbs will be saved.
From folk remedies, wood ash or milk whey diluted with water helps well.
Harvesting and storage rules
A fully ripe crop must be dug up and dried in the open air. After that, the bow is sorted out and put into storage. The room should be well ventilated, the air temperature in it is fifteen to twenty degrees Celsius.... Observing all the conditions, onions can be stored until the next harvest.
The Shetan onion variety has an excellent yield and can be grown in any region of the country. At the same time, he does not imply special skills and painstaking work. The main condition is the correct choice of the site, the timely removal of weeds, a prepared place for storing the crop.

What depends on the right choice?
- The quantity and quality of the crop - some varieties are grown for greens, others just for the turnip. In the wrong conditions, the turnip will not form, the yield will be too small, or the plants will simply remain small.
- Ripening shape, color - by color, onion varieties are divided into red, yellow and white. And the forms of the turnip and the plant itself are different. Although there are special ornamental varieties, many edible species are also capable of decorating flower gardens.
- Duration of storage of the crop - the choice also depends on your plans, to harvest during the season or to stock up on them for a long time. Sweet onion varieties are often short-lived and begin to sprout quickly. Spicy bulbs are stored for the longest time, up to 5-8 months.
- Disease and pest resistance - hybrid varieties are least of all susceptible to these problems.
- Taste characteristics - onions can have a spicy, semi-hot or sweet taste. Some are good raw in salad, while others are good in soup or stew.
Cupid's onion: varietal characteristics, pros and cons, yield + rules for planting and growing crops
Onions Cupid, also known as Cupido f1, is considered one of the highest yielding onions. It was bred in Holland and is famous for its large bulbs, weighing up to 150 g.
Cupid is famous for its strong root system, which determines the overall resistance of the variety to a variety of fungal diseases and pests. The only thing Cupid is unarmed in front of is the cold. The culture is quite thermophilic, therefore it needs a reliable shelter for the winter.
The fruits have good transportable qualities, they are kept warm for a long time - about 3-4 months. It is of fundamental importance that the taste and appearance of the fruit remains unchanged.
Video "A proven method of planting onions in the winter"
From this video you will learn how to properly plant onions before winter.
Onion characteristics and yield
The yield of each weave of such onions is about 450 kg. The appearance of Cupid is similar to other varieties of the culture: yellowish color of the husk, thin skin, oval shape. The taste characteristics of onions are quite universal: medium pungency, rich taste.
Advantages and disadvantages
Cupido f1 is considered one of the most sought after crops among gardeners. Such popularity of the onion variety is due to the presence of the following advantages:
- early landing
- early germination of sprouts
- resistance to many fungal diseases and insect pests
- plentiful and high-quality harvest
- excellent taste characteristics
- high rates of transportability
- long shelf life of the bulbs.
The only drawback of culture is its thermophilicity. As a result, onions cannot tolerate temperatures as low as -10 ° C. That is why the cultivation of the variety in the northern regions, which are characterized by severe winters, requires the creation of a full-fledged shelter.
Features of growing agriculture
The description of the variety of this culture gives every reason to assume that the cultivation of Cupid does not require special efforts and skills. However, having a minimum baggage of knowledge regarding the peculiarities of planting and breeding will be the key to successful cultivation.
Planting Cupid onions
Growing from seed to seedlings
The variety belongs to biennial crops. Therefore, the first year of cultivation is characterized by the receipt of seedlings, and the second - by the ripening of the bulb.
However, experienced gardeners manage to accommodate these processes in one year, which, in turn, ensures a faster harvest.
To do this, at the end of autumn, seeds are sown in boxes, and by spring, when the seedlings have already formed, the seedlings are transplanted into garden beds.
Site selection and soil preparation
The onion hybrid is very thermophilic, therefore, when choosing a place for planting, you should give preference to a sunny area, reliably sheltered from drafts. A garden bed near the walls of a house or a barn would be an excellent place to grow a crop.
For a rich and high-quality harvest, it is important to plant the vegetable in the ground where melons and legumes used to grow.
The main stages of soil preparation for planting Cupid are to dig up and fertilize the earth, to clear the beds of weeds. Fertilize the soil, as a rule, with natural material: cow dung, chicken droppings or compost composition. To shelter the planting from wind and frost, you can use hay, dry foliage or spruce branches.
The process of planting seedlings in the ground
Planting seedlings into the ground should be done only when the weather has finally stabilized. The holes should be made at intervals of 12-15 cm from each other, and about 25 cm should be left between the beds.
For planting, it is recommended to select sets of sizes up to 2 cm. It is important to carefully examine the bulb for mold, damage and rot. If available, a different set should be chosen. The aroma of the onion is also considered important. It should be light, unobtrusive, without impurities.
Before transplanting into the ground, the seedlings should be warmed up for two weeks. This will ensure complete drying of the planting material. Next, it must be disinfected with a solution of potassium permanganate and treated with a composition that promotes rapid growth.
Watering, loosening and weeding
Further planting care involves systematic watering. It should not be carried out in the spring, since the soil is already moist. In summer, watering is recommended about twice a week.
An important aspect of cultivation is the regular loosening of the soil, which contributes to the penetration of a sufficient amount of oxygen to the root system.
Watering the beds with seedlings should be done as needed.
A couple of weeks after planting, when the culture has already managed to adapt to new conditions, it is necessary to feed. For this, you can use any nitrogen or phosphorus composition. Organic fertilizers will be an excellent solution: chicken manure, mullein, compost.
Pests, diseases and prevention
The Cupid variety is considered one of the most resistant to various fungal diseases and pests. The only truly dangerous threat to this type of onion is the onion fly. In order to protect and prevent it, it is recommended to regularly spray the plantings with special insecticidal preparations.
Harvesting and storage
This type of hybrid onion is characterized by early ripening. As a rule, it takes no more than 4–5 months from the moment of planting the seedlings in the ground until the first harvest. That is, by planting seedlings in early spring, by the beginning of autumn the gardener will receive the first full harvest.
Storage of bulbs does not require special conditions. The variety is distinguished by high rates of transportability and a long shelf life, therefore, the harvested crop will lie in a cellar, refrigerator or any other cool dark place for more than six months.
Cupid's unpretentiousness determines his ability to adapt to almost any environmental conditions. The main thing is to protect the planting from strong winds and frosts.
Cupid, along with Condor, rightfully occupies a leading position in the list of the most popular onion varieties. The quality of the hybrid variety is confirmed by numerous reviews of gardeners.
This is also an important aspect of grooming. It includes two procedures: weeding and loosening. The last procedure should be carried out 1-2 times a week. Gargle the onion as well necessary regularlyso that the weeds do not drown out the grown plants. Both of these treatments will help provide good conditions for the vegetable to grow and prevent diseases and pests from occurring.
In addition, there are a number of pests that can attack onions. The most common is the lurking beetle, which lays its eggs inside the leaf. The larvae of this insect eat onion feathers, thereby adversely affecting the entire plant. If a vegetable is damaged by these pests, drugs such as Fitoverm or Agravertin should be used. It is very important to check the weather forecast before doing this., since it should not rain for three to four hours after spraying.
The most common onion disease is downy mildew. Its main symptoms are the appearance of a grayish bloom on the leaves, and then red spots that rot. To combat this disease, it is necessary to use any fungicides, since this unpleasant phenomenon is caused by a fungus. Suitable, for example, copper sulfate or Bordeaux liquid. If the plant has been sprayed with an antifungal agent, as soon as its feather has reached 15 cm in length, then this disease will not appear.
Advantages and disadvantages

Strigunovsky onion: variety description and cultivation from seeds
Strigunovsky onion is a versatile variety for consumption, it can be cooked and taken fresh. Strigunovsky belongs to the northern varieties, for full ripening by the time of harvest, he needs a day length approaching 17 hours.
If you try to sow it in the southern regions, then success is unlikely, because it will receive an excess of heat.
The main characteristics of the variety
In terms of the number of fruits grown, this onion variety belongs to small-nesting plants. The shape of the bulb is round, slightly elongated up and down. The scales are light on all layers early in planting. By the time of ripening, the outer layers acquire a yellow color, the inner ones remain white.
Strigunovsky onion grows in many regions due to its ability to adapt to climatic conditions. In cool climates, this variety is in demand for planting, because it ripens quickly, which is important for such an area. Occurs as one-year and two-year crops. The first is planted with seeds, a good harvest is obtained, the weight of the fruit is average (up to 60g). The only drawback can be considered a later ripening than from the seed. For the second, you need to grow a set; when harvesting, the mass of the bulb reaches 200g.
There are a number of advantages typical for this type of bulbs:
- Early maturation.
- Large fruit - 45-80g.
- High productivity. If you grow a biennial plant, you can collect up to 3.5 kg of bulbs from one square meter.
- It lies well when stored in winter until almost the next harvest.
- High degree of ripening. At the time of harvest, the number of ripe bulbs is from 50%, this value often reaches 98%.
The only drawback that can be found in this type of onion is the pungent taste. But this confuses few, based on the popularity of this variety. If you use this onion after heat treatment, the pungency is not felt too much.
Strigunovsky onion is of Russian origin, so it is suitable for cultivation in many regions of the country and is very popular with summer residents and gardeners.
It has many advantages - it is well stored, has a high yield and is not particularly picky about growing conditions. So why not plant the Strigunovsky bow on your site?
How to grow Strigunovsky onions?
For the best possible result in the fall, the following rules must be observed during planting:
- The soil should be sufficiently loose and rich in nutrients.
- The site is chosen well lit for the longest daylight hours for the culture.
- Watering the bed should be intensively only during the growth of the feather and bulb ovary. During the growing period of the bulb, watering must be reduced in order for full ripening to occur in the planned period, and the onions are well stored.
- Regular weeding of the beds is strictly mandatory.
- Every year, the location of the onion beds in the garden should change.
It is also necessary to take into account the planting dates and carefully calculate them, otherwise a low yield is inevitable.
It is necessary not to miss the moment when the soil is ready, it is approximately the end of April, but the more exact time depends on the weather conditions and the growing region. It is advisable to take seeds a year ago in order to achieve maximum germination, which must be checked before sowing.
Preparation and verification
To check the percentage of suitable seeds, it is required to moisten the cloth and put the seeds between its wet layers. The resulting structure must be placed in a warm place.
After the sprouts appear, preparation begins directly for sowing, which primarily consists in processing the seeds from fungal diseases with special dressing agents. Then it is necessary to soak them in warm water (45-50 ° C) for half an hour, and then place them in aloe juice for the same time.
Sown beds will not quickly please with green sprouts. To speed up this process, you can soak the nigella (seeds) in slightly warm water for several days before planting. The water should be changed regularly.
To prevent the seeds from floating up, they are placed in a cloth bag. After the extracted nigella, it is necessary to undergo a germination test procedure. So that you can see where the already sown area of the garden is, onion seeds are mixed with chalk.
Sowing and care
If the soil is dense, then you need to give it a loose structure. This is necessary so that it is easier for the sprout to break through. It is recommended to sow nigella in rows equal to 1m. The grooves should be no more than 2cm deep.
Seeds are laid out in the soil one at a time at a distance of about 1 cm, it must be strictly observed, then you get an ideal seed. If the distance is greater, it will grow large, due to which the necessary ripening stage after harvesting will not occur. If the distance is less than 1cm, then the harvest will be small. Such a root crop is poorly stored, and its germination begins long before the term.
At the last stage of planting, the sowing is covered with soil and slightly compacted, avoiding air gaps, then the soil is mulched with humus or peat in a small layer. After these procedures, the onion is watered and covered with foil until the first sprouts. After the appearance of greenery, the film is removed.
When caring for the seed, it is necessary to prevent the formation of a crust on the ground and the appearance of weeds, which can reduce the yield in half.
So that in case of a breakthrough of weeds that have emerged before the crop, it is not necessary to remove it, together with the onion, lettuce or radish be placed in the grooves. They germinate earlier, from them it will be possible to determine exactly where the rows are located. After the greens of the bulbs appear, the "beacons" can be pulled out.
Watering is carried out every 3-7 days in the first half of the growing season, after which it must be stopped so as not to spoil the fruit. For 6-7 days before the toilet, foliar feeding of the fruits is carried out for their better ripening.
For storage, the seedlings must be sorted by size into small (0.5-1 cm and smaller), medium (1.3-2.6 cm) and large (more than 3 cm). The latter two species keep well at an average temperature not exceeding 18 ° C, but not much lower to avoid the appearance of arrows after further planting. The first type is problematic to store, because it is prone to drying out. It is recommended to do this in cloth bags at zero temperature.
Planting seedlings before winter will help not to suffer with the observance of these conditions, which is guaranteed to lead to a good harvest, since it does not release arrows. To grow a two-year-old onion of this variety, you first need to warm up the sets in order to resume the development processes.
This is done in several stages:
- We heat for 2-3 weeks at a temperature of 20 ° C
- from morning to evening (no more than 10 hours), we warm it up at 30-40 ° C.
To avoid such a lengthy procedure, you can pour hot water (up to 50 ° C) for ¼ hour before planting, and then immediately place it in cold water.
Then the seedlings are fed with a growth stimulant and disinfected from fungi, after which they are planted in the heated ground, to a depth of 5-7 cm. Small bulbs should be planted at a distance of 4-5 cm from each other, medium - 6-8 cm, large - 8-10 cm. Cover with earth, mulch and cover until sprouts.
Strigunovsky onions are the choice of many gardeners. It gained its popularity due to its high germination rate, as well as the possibility of long storage. The fact that this variety is adaptable to different climatic conditions has made it popular in many regions.
