Onion ‘Long Tropea Red’


Allium cepa

Heirloom variety that produces red torpedo shaped bulb up to 15cm long. Ideal salad onion, can be picked young as a bunching onion (ideally in the subtropics). Does take a while to bulb and will need to be timed for harvesting in Summer when the days are longer. It’s not one for long term storage.

Approximately 100 seeds.
