Very good onion, easy to grow. Mine turned out smaller in size compared to some of the other storage onions however they do have a kick to them, especially raw. Cooking them takes the spiciness away a bit but not completely still giving the dish a great added taste. They look great braided with their pink/ purple skin too! (they are a red onion inside) This is a keeper in our garden now that we are use to cooking with them! Worth the try!
