Onion 'Tornado' (Autumn Planting)
From the same British breeding programme as the hugely popular 'Shakespeare', comes an exciting new autumn-planting variety, Onion 'Tornado'. With a milder flavour than other autumn varieties, Onion 'Tornado' is delicious in salads, but is equally good in stews, where it holds together well. Resistant to bolting and storing for up to 8 weeks, this superb brown onion is the perfect variety for bridging the gap before your next spring onions are ready to harvest. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6").
Companion planting: Try growing onions with mint to confuse and deter onion fly.
