Onions are one of our most invaluable vegetables and also one of civilisation's oldest medicines. They can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and are anti-asthmatic, antibacterial and antiseptic. This triple pack contains a 250g pack of the following three varieties:
Red Arrow - Produces a very early crop of round, mild-flavoured bulbs. Should be 4-5 weeks earlier than Red Champion.
Sturon - A well known and flavoursome variety which produces round, straw-coloured, medium-sized onions just right for the kitchen. Being quite thin-necked they keep extremely well through the winter, remaining in good condition right through until February/March. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
Rose de Roscoff - A traditional rosy-coloured French market variety, introduced in the 17th century, passed down through generations of skilled growers, with a Designation of Protected Origin (like Cornish pasties). Its texture feels juicy and crunchy in the mouth and it has a fruity and sweet taste, with a slight sharpness. After cooking its texture becomes tender and the sharpness gives way to a sweet taste. Stores very well - can often be kept until the spring of the year following its harvest!
