Description

Red Karmen Onion Set

[120 days] Sometimes called ‘Spanish onions’ or ‘salad onions,’ Red Karmens have an exceptionally delicate, sweet taste that makes them perfect for salads, sliced on top of burgers, or any cooked dishes that require a light, sweet onion. The bulbs come out flattened yet globe-shaped, and the flesh is a crisp white with quite beautiful light-crimson circles between the scales.

Easy to grow. And if you want green onions as well, plant with the sets nearly touching, then harvest every other onion once the tops reach 6” tall. Just don’t plant before April—they like the longer days.
