ON589A - Rossa d'Inverno Rubino
Intended for maximum storage, Rossa d'Inverno Rubino translates from the Italian as "Red Winter Ruby." This long day storage onion has a globe shape with deep red skins streaked with even deeper red longitudinal lines. Perfect for the home gardener or fresh market, it's an excellent choice for planting in the spring and harvesting by late August. Due to its dry-ish nature, if it is dried and cured carefully, it will store for five to six months. Its flesh is pungent and sharp, bringing a tear to the eyes of chefs as late as January from a summer harvest.

How To Grow
Choose sweet onion varieties for enjoying raw or cooked within a couple of months of harvest. Storage types keep much longer, and will last until the following spring in the right conditions. All onions are photoperiodic – day length triggers bulb development. Our varieties are all “long day” types, suitable for northern US and Canada.
