Organic Purplette Onion - Allium cepa
These little, rich burgundy hued, onions mature early and hold great. Harvest when golf ball sized or when younger for bunching onions with beautiful purple ends. The rich burgundy color turns a lovely light pink when cooked or pickled. We suggest using Purplette for any recipe that calls for onion. Great fresh in potato or cucumber salad and salsa or try it grilled, roasted, or charred. Also makes pretty and delicious pickled onions.
