Red Torpedo Onion Seeds (110 days)


A fantastic onion variety from a small Mediterranean town in Italia. 

Red Torpedos are long, red-purple, spindle-shaped onions with a mild, sweet flesh. 

Torpedos are great for planting in small garden spaces as you can get far more in a smaller space than when compared to other onions. 

Remember to enjoy them soon as sweet onions are poor keepers. 

Very adaptable, frost tolerant and will perform well in cool weather. Intermediate daylength. 

Be sure to provide adequate moisture.

Planting Tips:

Day length sensitive – check for which is best in your area.  Needs a light friable soil to grow successfully.  Start in early spring, scatter seeds in tray ¼”- ½” apart in moist soil and put in warm place.  Transplant out 8-10 weeks later in final spacing.  Thinned onions are great in salads!

Seeding Rate:

300,000 plants/acre, aproximately 3 lb.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
