Description

A dual purpose Italian variety with a pungent flavour. Spring Onion Lilia is best grown as a salad onion with nice, dark green leaves and a shiny, intense red inner core. Onion Lilia can also be grown as a maincrop, storing bulb onion. When fully mature it shows off its defined red and white inner rings.


Companion planting: Try growing onions with mint to confuse and deter onion fly.

No thinning is required. Harvesting can usually start 6-8 weeks after sowing.
