organic onion seedsOrganic Red Cipollini Onion Seeds (115 days)

Orginally from Italy these onions are considered LONG day, but some people claim they grow them just fine in day neutral areas. 

Red Cipollini is bright red, flattened and can be used for fresh eating, boiling, or braising. 

Red Cipollini is about 3-4" across and about 1-1 1/2" in depth. 

Stores well.  In fact it can be seen in Italy braided (like garlic) and hanging in kitchens.

Seedlings can be fall planted here in Northern California and should over winter well. 

In my opinion Red Cipollini onions produce a sweeter onion when over-wintered.
