ONION Cipollini Brown - 100 Heirloom Seeds
These round, flat Italian onions are about 2-5cm in diameter. They’re available in the autumn. Pronounced chip-oh-LEE-nee this is a smaller, flat, pale onion. The flesh is a slightly yellowish colour, and the skins are thin and papery. The colour of the skin ranges from pale yellow to the light brown colour of Spanish onions. These are sweeter onions, having more residual sugar than garden-variety white or yellow onions, but not as shallots. The flavour is sweet and relatively mild.
The advantage of cipollinis is that they are small and flat, and the shape lends them well to roasting. This combined with their sweetness makes for a lovely addition to recipes where you might want to use whole caramelised onions. It is well suited for grilling and kabobs. Excellent when roasted with meats or fish. High in fibre.
Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet.
