This mild, sweet flavoured onion has a purplish-red skin with a white flesh tinged with red throughout. Red onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavour. They prefer a rich, well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered spot. They’re low maintenance and easy to grow and ready to harvest when the tops dry out and fall over. They are most commonly eaten raw but can be grilled, barbecued, roasted or lightly cooked to accompany other foods. It’s perfect sliced thinly and eaten fresh in sandwiches or to add colour and flavour to salads or stir-fries. Once cooked they tend to lose their colour and develop a subtle sweetness.
