80-110 days (long-day) Flat, Italian "cipollini" variety. These delicious, small white onions command a high price at specialty markets. Very sweet and mild, used in Italy for pickling, grilling, and in salads. We have select Italian seed.

What are the pros? Large, productive.

What are the cons? Not what I wanted

Review:

I am a great fan of cipollini onions which I have grown for a number of years - small, very flat, narrow stems, very sweet and so flavorful. These are not them. The seeds that I got last winter to grow for the 2014 season gave large, globe shaped white sweetish onions with necks a little thick for bunching. I ended up not selling them at market as bunching onions. They started to sprout as soon as they had finished curing, making them unsaleable. I was quite disappointed.

Taste great not flat

What are the pros? taste, size

What are the cons? There didn't turn out flat

Review:

Overall the taste is very good. I've grown these 2 years in a row now. The seeds have very good germination. I start them indoors in Jan under grow lights and plant them outside at the end of march first of April depending on weather. They do very well and grow with little to no work during the season. The only thing I didn't like about them is most were not flat. The first year not one was flat, but the second year I got 4 our of 60 onions that were flat. I have those flat ones saved back for seed next year to see if it's something that has been lost or if it's my garden soil. Hopefully I'll have all flat ones in 2 or 3 years. Taste was great though.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? look different

Review:

I can't comment on the taste of these onions, as I haven't tried them yet - they look large, and white - which is why I had to recheck what I had ordered, as I thought I had ordered "flat" onions. they didn't grow flat for me, definately, large, white and round. I'm sure they will taste good. I will check recommend to a friend, but they don't look like what was advertised.

Review:

South Dakota is long day (derka derr). Just because it has "South" in the name doesn't make it a southern state... [insert insult to previous reviewer's intelligence here]. That said, I've grown similar, I think they were the same, but called something different. These are great onions if you like adding a bit of onion to other dishes without having to bag and refrigerate the other half of a larger onion. Did pretty will in my amended northern LP sandy Michigan soil, which is still long day, even though it's the "Lower Peninsula" which "coincidentally" is "parallel" with "Southern" Dakota. ;) ;) ;) love you guys
