Redwing onions are a favorite long term storage onion of ours. The globular reddish-purple bulbs grow up to 4" in diameter and interior is ringed white and red. Thick exterior scales remain firm throughout a long duration and make this onion perfect for storage. The flavor is mild at harvest and picks up pungency the longer it is stored. Easily stores up to 9 months if kept cool (36 degrees Fahrenheit with relative humidity at 80%). Day neutral onion, but grows best in the central to northern parts of the United States.
