Allium cepa

Brown Cipollini (pronounced chip-oh-LEE-nee) is a quick growing heirloom Italian variety with sweet brown flat shaped bulbs and delicious white flesh. The excellent sweet onion flavor also makes them ideal for grilling and roasting as well as salads. These flat, button-shaped, brown-skinned onions grow to between 2.5 & 7.5cm in diameter & about 2.5cm in depth, dependent upon how close together they are planted. Thin skinned, with bright white to translucent flesh, its high residual sugar level produces an onion with a very sweet yet mild flavor, ideal for roasting or caramelizing. Adaptable to most well-drained garden soils prefers an open sunny position.

Rows should be about 30cm apart, or if planted in dense beds, 12.5cm apart in triangles for the best use of space. Thin or transplant seedlings as needed to open spacing or fill empty spots.
