Item code: 41874
Despatch: From 23rd March 2021.
The collection consists of two of the best heat treated onion varieties.
Cupido - A recent introduction that is becoming increasingly popular amongst commercial growers. Giving a high yield, it produces consistently round onions with an attractive golden yellow colour. With a perfect slightly sharp taste and crispness this variety will keep you going right through the winter as stores well.
Red Baron AGM - The best red-skinned variety, the attractive, crimson-skinned bulbs when sliced reveal contrasting red and white rings, making it most attractive on the plate. Red Baron has a lovely, robust flavour and is a remarkably good keeper. The perfect partner for Cupido.
Heat treating our onion sets is rather like turbo-charging them! This totally natural process takes several months, but the process means they establish and grow very rapidly, giving higher yields - and with virtually no risk of prematurely running to seed or 'bolting'.
All of our bulbs are certified as disease and virus free.
Delivered in 250g packs, each pack containing approx. 80 sets.
