This Italian heirloom gourmet onion from the late 1800's is hard to find in stores. It is very flat, bright red, and is delicious eaten fresh or used in cooking. A gourmet 'cipollini? (meaning 'little onion' in Italian) type, the beautiful flattened red globes are 1" high and 2"-3" in diameter. An intermediate day onion, it grows well in most areas of the U.S. Maturing in just 70 days, its sweet flavor is perfect for roasting and grilled kebabs. They should be eaten as shortly after harvesting. It is typically not a good storage onion, but the bulbs may last for many months if stored in mesh bags in a cool, dry location. This packet plants: one 30-foot row.
