Allium cepa

Aptly named, this is the best onion for showing for many a while! Whether you are a serious exhibitor or just someone who wants to take a crack at the village show, it’s worth giving this one a try. Weights can get up to 1000gms, yet the flavour is still maintained and unusually for a large onion, it also stores well.

  • Onions up to 1kg (2.2lbs) and above
  • For shows or culinary use
  • Stores well for a large onion
