Onion Barletta 100 Seeds

Allium cepa

This is a versatile onion, small and crisp when eaten fresh. Barletta is fabulous in cream sauces, casseroles, soups or stews and great on skewers. Mature size is 2.5cm in diameter. No curing necessary. Excellent for pickling, too. Early production.

Onions come in a range of colours and shapes and sizes. Brown :- strong flavour and pungent. Usually good keepers for storage. White :- milder but still flavoursome. Keep fairly well. Red :- Mild, suitable to use raw in salads and sandwiches. The seedlings should be allowed to gain a bit of strength before planting out - usually 4 to 6 weeks will be enough. When they are big enough to handle, you can plant out. They start off looking like blades of grass.

They don't have to be in a greenhouse (though that would be ideal), any sheltered spot will do. The idea is to guard against rapid changes of temperature, especially at night.

Culinary hints - cooking and eating Onion

Brown onions roasted whole with other vegetables are delicious.
