Also known as “torpedo” on account of their elongated shape, Red Long is a superb old variety from Calabria in Mediterranean Southern Italy, a region famous for its sweet onions. We’ve been growing these forever and bunched fresh at the market, they earned a loyal following amongst our customers. Very unique and beautiful, they are a deep wine red color and quite sweet. Perfect for panzanella, our favorite summer salad. Not keepers but last about 5-6 months, longer than most sweets. Dramatic specialty for markets.
