Giant Kelsae Onion Seeds

Giant Kelsae Onion Seed 60 seeds pkt- 

The Kelsae Onion was bred by Alfred Breed - Senior of Mertoun Gardens in St Boswells Roxburghshire Scotland around about 1948 , he looked after the strain and showed it with great success right up to around 1976 when his son Alfred Breed Junior took over the strain.

Alfred Breed Junior passed it on to Sinclair Mc’Gill around 1978 where it was multiplied at Sinclair McGills Garden Centre in Kelso Scotland, around that time the whole crop of seed was stored in the Potting Shed which caught fire but luckily a Mr Alljo who worked on the nursery fortunately save a small amount of the seed.

Alfred Breed and Sinclair McGill  manage to build the strain back up so they had plenty of stock . Through the late 70s, 80s and 90s it was shown to great success by Bill and Bob Rogers of Crail in Fife, later Mel Ednie of Anstruther. Fife ruled the show world with the strain right up to 1993 , he showed it as a dressed onion to extremely high standards. 
This is the original stock.
