Product Information

Red Baron is a wonderful variety that will give you a heavy crop of gorgeous deep red onions with striking red rimmed white flesh. It has a good strong flavour and is great used raw in a salad. They store well over winter too!

It's easy to grow your own tasty onions when you start by planting onion sets. 'Sets' are tiny onions grown from seed which when replanted in spring just carry on growing, giving delicious bulb onions which are ready for lifting in early autumn. It works perfectly and is the chosen method of most professional growers.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence.

Supplied as a 250gm pack of sets.
