Onion Dark Red
Myro Farms Garden Center
Red onions are cultivars of the onion (Allium cepa) with purplish-red skin and white flesh tinged with red. These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavor. They are often consumed raw, grilled or lightly cooked with other foods, or added as a decoration to salads. They tend to lose their colour when cooked. Red onions are available throughout the year. Red onions are high in flavonoids, and fibre. They can be stored 3 to 4 months at room temperature. Known varieties include 'Red Zeppelin'. The skin of the red onion has been used as a dye.
