A seed grown on our farm, Rossa Di Milano (Cipolla ramata di Milano) is very sweet and easy to grow Italian heirloom from Lombardy Italy.
Sow: Indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1’’ deep & transplant 1 week after last frost.
Harvest: When the bulb is 4-5’’ big.
Rare Italian heirloom is exceptionally beautiful especially when braided into ropes and hung in the kitchen for winter use. Large (10-15 cm) barrel shaped onions are a bright rosy red colour and have a sweet, pungent taste and firm texture. Flat on top tapering to a narrow rounded bottom. Great storage onion. This Italian storage onion has a heat that chefs prize for cooking authentic Italian recipes. It is a good keeper, and it tolerates cool weather.
