We are one of the only companies in Europe specialising in the breeding of varieties for onion set production.

Onion Set Development
Sets continue to be produced from isolated and carefully selected production fields in France, Belgium and Holland. With NAKT inspection and control.
Our seeds are fully tested for freedom from stem and bulb eelworm (Ditylenchus dipsaci) and our production fields are certified free from white rot (Sclerotuim cepivorum).
All fields are inspected regularly by Allium Seeds staff as well as NAKT. We are constantly checking for trueness of variety, virus infection, stem and bulb eelworm, white rot, downy mildew and fusarium.
With written approval of fields by NAKT which is valid as a plant passport under directive 2000/29/EU.
Providing full traceability, using NAKT numbered field labels attached to bags.
With certification at the time of harvest for freedom of downy mildew (Peronospora destructor).
Moving Forward With Us
We pride ourselves in giving a reliable and personal service which has helped us build up many long-term relationships.
New customers are attracted to our bespoke breeding efforts which have, in recent seasons, introduced new set varieties Spitfire F1 and Red Radiant F1. In addition, Red Herald F1, is increasingly popular for the direct drilling market and our round brown/pink shallot Lorient F1 is now widely grown for sales to UK supermarkets.
Many more exciting new varieties are progressing from our UK based breeding team in the coming years.
