Onion Seeds - Borettana

Allium cepa

A mini sweet onion designed for pickling, Borettana is an old Italian variety of cipollini onion, literally meaning ‘little onion’ in Italian.  Originally grown from the 1400s, this flat little onion is great for pickling in balsamic vinegar, roasted with thyme and rosemary, or added to casseroles. Borettana onions are sweet, easy to grow and store really well throughout winter, so make sure you try them in a warming, winter onion soup!
