Onion, Lilia (Organic)
Allium cepa. Red Scallion/Onion. 40 days bunching, 90 days bulb.
A beautiful, red scallion / salad / spring onion with tall, dark green tops. Red color develops early. Flavor is not as pungent as one would expect for a red onion; its mildness is well suited for raw/fresh use. Bright red/purple color is very pretty in the field, the market booth, and on the plate. Flavor intensifies as plants mature. Also does well as a dual-purpose onion and can be grown past bunching stage to produce oblong bulbs. Winner of the United Kingdom’s Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.
Seed produced by Pitchfork & Crow in Lebanon, Oregon.
