This torpedo-shaped variety has mild sweet flesh that forms in tender, rose-coloured rings. It is truly versatile in the kitchen and can be used young as a bunching onion or left to mature for uses from stock and soups to putting on a skewer on a BBQ. A sweet flavoured variety favoured by Michelin starred chefs! (Onion/shallot hybrid).
