Onion Seeds - Long Red Florence

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2694
  • Pack Contents: 300 seeds

Long Red Florence onions seeds produce a mild sweet flavoured onion that can either be pulled young as spring onions or allowed to mature for August cropping.

The elongated bulbs have a red skin and are ideal for casseroles or salads.

Did you know: That Onion Red Florence is classed as a "Banana Shallot". This term is often used by cooks to describe the long bulb varieties of onions and shallots. It is more of a cooking term than one used by gardeners.
