Botanical Interests Packet

This Italian heirloom has been available to gardeners since the late 1800s but is hard to find in stores. A gourmet "cipollini" (meaning "little onion" in Italian) type, the beautiful, flattened red globes are 1" high by 2" - 3" in diameter. Their sweet flavor is delicious fresh or cooked - perfect for roasting and grilled kebabs. (approx. 170 seeds/pkt)
