Did you start with seedlings or onion sets on March 29th?  
If you started with seedlings, when did you sow the seeds?

Those in the trial were purchased bundles of seedlings. I have grown sets and they did OK but were not great and did not store well. Apparently sets are often produced elsewhere and are not adapted to California conditions. I usually grow mine from seed. This year I planted Candy indoors on Jan 26 and they romped away. They now have two true leaves and I planted some out yesterday (frost cloth overnight). Local nurseries often have cell packs of seedlings for transplanting.
