This onion tends to be medium-large sized with a purple/red skin. The flavor is sweeter than other onions with a mild white onion taste. Great for use on sandwiches. This variety of onion is commonly consumed raw due to the lack of intensity, but it does taste great when cooked. This vegetable can be stored at room temperature for 3-4 monthswithout rotting as long as there are no abrasions to the flesh.
