Rossa di Milano (or "Red of Milan") was first introduced to Hope Seeds by Patrick Steiner of Stellar Seeds in BC. Rossa is sweet and pungent (medium to hot tasting onion) and prized for it's storability. Red outter skin holds on tight. The interior is pale pink to white.

2013 we actually managed to have Rossa Di Milano transplants in the garden properly early. We also managed to water enough to generate beautiful large hard onions. We have been enjoying the wonderful colour and flavour in salads and all our cooking. Fabulous onions!
