Allium fistulosum

In both looks and taste, this is a most attractive onion. Producing very long, spindle-shaped bulbs, about 15cm in length, a deep purple-red in color, it has a very mild and sweet flavor and is ideal for salads and pickling. A delicious Italian heirloom from Florence in Tuscany.

Sow sparingly to avoid thinning out; ideally allow 2cm between each seedling. Each seed should then produce a single well-shaped onion.  Harvest when the foliage has fully died down. Store in a cool, dry place.
