Onions have different day length requirements depending on the type of onion seed you plant. A long day onion requires more hours of light to produce a bulb. Most people in zone 6 or colder should plant long day onions and most people in zone 7 or warmer should plant short day onions. You can check what zone you are in through the USDA's Plant Hardiness Map.
