Product Overview

Allium cepa

Lovely Italian onion with excellent flavor and attractive, dark red skin. A beautiful addition to an antipasto tray!

This old Italian heirloom is commonly used in Italy for pinzimonio, a colorful mixture of raw vegetables served with a separate bowl of olive oil, vinegar, and salt. Use this colorful, torpedo-type, young red onion in almost any dish requiring onions. Hard to find in grocery stores, so grow it at home!

Variety Info

Italian 'Red of Florence' is a torpedo-type, dark-red bulbing onion with mild, sweet flavor; a rare Italian heirloom. Elongated shape as a bunching onion, but given space and time will eventually form a bulb.

Sowing Inside

8 to 10 weeks before your average last frost date; transplant 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date.

Sowing Outside

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date or as soon as the soil temperature reaches 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F, and every 2 to 4 weeks recommended for continuous production. In Mild Climates, sow in fall for spring harvest.
