An old Italian variety (known as Cipollini in Italy) that is loved on the continent! Onion Borettana has flat shaped bulbs with paper-thin, golden skin.

They have a lovely and sweet flavour and are traditionally pickled with sweet balsamic vinegar and sold in Italian delis. They are delicious braised and served as a side dish with chicken or fish.

Growing Information

Sow liberally but not too thickly, into finely raked, firmed, moist soil or compost in containers, beds or borders at a depth of 1.3cm (½") in rows 15cm (6") apart. No thinning is necessary. Grows best in well-prepared soil manured the previous autumn or a quality compost if grown in containers. Water freely during periods of dry weather. Sow a pinch of seed fortnightly so that small tasty salad onions are always available for the salad bowl.
