Onion Purplette

  • Botanical Name: Allium cepa

Red Skinned Mini Onion. These tasty specialty onions mature early and are uniquely attractive either topped or bunched. Purplette turns a nice pastel pink colour when cooked or pickled and can be harvested very young as baby bunching/spring onions with purple pearl ends. For smallest size, do not thin - harvest by pulling the onions by the bunch as needed. Perfect for pickling or freezing. No skins form until late in the season, making them easy to wash and prepare.

Maturity 60 days from direct sowing.
