This onion is legendary in Conneticut's "most ancient town" and traces its development to the 1700's. Today it is celebrated as an icon and logo of Wethersfield. We may have been the first company to sell seeds for it commercially, but before we offered it, this onion was already popular from New York to Bermuda and brought much wealth to the onion growers of the town. Our 1856 catalog states, "It is the kind mostly grown at Wethersfield. It grows to large size, deep red, thick, approaching to round shape, fine-grained, pleasant flavored, and very productive. It ripens in September, and keeps well." It is a slightly flattened onion of renowned quality and is sure to become a tradition in your garden this year.
