I grew these this year - my first attempt at onion from seed. My biggest one was about 3" in diameter. Although they were not all very large, pretty much every seed germinated and produced. The onions were beautiful and had excellent flavor. Had them fresh in salads, salsa and cooked with them. Will grow these again next spring and I am attempting to grow some of these into winter... we'll see how they do.

I grew this for the first time in 2009 and it was spectacular. Excellent flavor that can be thinly sliced and added to salad, potato salad, or any other use you can think of for red onions. This is going in my garden again in 2010.
