This little cipollini type onion is a hidden gem from the bountiful bread basket that is Italy. While classic Italian varieties like Genovese Basil and Roma tomatoes may have swept us off of our feet, it is absolutely delightful to know that there are more incredible varieties that have not been discovered by many cooks and gardeners yet! A beloved traditional roasting onion, the cipollini originated in the 1400s in Boretto, Italy. The higher rate of residual sugar in these little bulbs helps them carmelize to perfection. Cipollini literally translates to "little onion" in Italian, and indeed these sweet bulbs rarely exceed 3" in diameter, which makes them perfect for whole roasting, pickling and spearing onto kebabs. Bianca Di Guigno is a variety that is considered easier to grow than most and the bulbs mature later than other varieties, with super slender "necks" that make for easy braiding! This is an easy to grow variety!

What are the pros? Versatile, great for pickling

What are the cons? Too mild for some dishes

Review:

Seems like everything in description rings true! They are relatively easy to grow and they do seem to take awhile to mature. But they are great even when a bit green. Quite mild, used them in pickling and a few other dishes. Did feel like when sauteed they really lost a lot of their flavor overall though. A bit too mild for that kind of thing I suppose. I would plant these again, but may try a few other varieties in the future just to see what else is out there.
