Red Torpedo Onion
110 days. Long-Day onion
A fantastic onion variety from a small Mediterranean town in Italia.
Red Torpedos are long, red-purple, spindle-shaped onions with a mild, sweet flesh.
Torpedos are great for planting in small garden spaces as you can get far more in a smaller space than when compared to other onions.
Remember to enjoy them soon as sweet onions are poor keepers. Very adaptable, frost tolerant and will perform well in cool weather.
Be sure to provide adequate moisture
Contains approx. 100 heirloom seeds
Grow easily from seed, take up very little room in garden. Can be planted in a small corner or spot in your garden and do well even when crowded. I did not do rows with these torpedo onions, I scattered the seeds in a 2 foot square spot and they grew beautifully and we pulled what we needed for meal, using greens as well. Sweet, crispy onions....great on sandwich or in salad or stir fry.
