(110 days from transplant)

For Short Day Areas

These pretty little Italian heirlooms have a flattened spherical shape and look just like rosy-bronze glossy buttons, each about 2 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. They have firm, fine-grained flesh, well-developed flavor and satiny skins. Cippolinis are traditionally served whole, braised in a sweet and sour sauce or marinated in a balsamic vinaigrette.


You'll also find them delicious roasted whole in butter or olive oil, threaded on skewers for kebabs or used as pretty little boiling onions. When cooked, they really sweeten up and caramelize to a beautiful color. These intermediate/long day little onions will store well for about five months.
5 dozen plants $15.95
