100 days — 'Ruby' onions have a deep globe shape, are medium large in size, and are a deep-red color with firm, pungent flesh. If properly cured and stored in a cool, dark, dry location 'Ruby' is an excellent keeper as a storage variety. Bred by John Brozdowski, a private breeder from Pine Island, New York it was introduced commercially in 1964 by Asgrow Seed Company. 'Ruby' is an intermediate day variety. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 200 seeds.
Grew well in dappled shade in "long-day" area, good keeper
I grew both Ruby (intermediate day) and Yellow Sweet Spanish (long day) onions here at 41N in an area of dappled shade as an experiment. I started them indoors in February and put them into the ground in April. Ruby did well, growing into medium to large onions even though they were in dappled shade. (Yellow Sweet Spanish didn't germinate as well and then didn't grow as well, so I ended up with only a few very small yellow onions--I'm guessing dappled shade was just not enough sun for them even in my "officially long day" area.) My Ruby onions have been good keepers--I'm still using them now at the end of December.
