Homegrown Heirloom Seeds from Our Permaculture Homestead

Onion – Red


Red onion has a milder taste than other onions which makes it great for salads but also is suitable for cooking. This variety has a beautiful vibrant red-purple colour and good storage life. We are not sure exactly what heirloom variety this originally is – but it is what we grow for our family at our homestead and love it!

When: Autumn
Plant: Start seeds in punnets and plant out when the first shoots form. Plant in full sun, 10cm spacing. Harvest when the tops dry and fall over. Hang whole plants in a dry place to cure for best long term storage.
Seed Count: Approx. 100
