A now rare heirloom from 1873, developed along the Mill River in Southport, Connecticut. This is one of the most beautiful of all the red onions we’ve trialed. Large, globe-shaped roots average from 7 to 9 ounces, but can reach 15 ounces. Intensely red-purple, glossy skin, firm flesh with deep color throughout and pungent flavor. Exceptional keeping qualities, storing up to 11 months. A long-day variety.
