Borettana Cipollini onions are often referred to as summer mini onions. These pretty little Italian onions from Boretto, Italy have a flattened spherical shape and look just like rosy-bronze glossy buttons, each about 1-3″ diameter and 1″ thick. When cooked, Borettana Cipollini onions really sweeten up and caramelize to a beautiful color. A unique offering for farmers’ markets. Ideal for braiding. This variety does well in Intermediate and Long Day areas.

    I enjoyed these onions cut in half on the equator and then roasted in the oven. They are only about half an inch thick cut this way so they cook evenly and caramelize thoroughly. Yum! In late January, I still have them in storage here in Michigan. One less star for lack of uniform size.

    These specialty onions outlasted all the other varieties I’ve tried in storage. It’s March in Vermont and I still have trays of these onions in my basement. As long as they are kept in a dark cool place, I’ve had no issues with them sprouting. They even outlasted the usual Spanish yellow onions. I was also a bit lazy drying them and they still are going strong. Slightly more difficult to skin and cut up due to their shape but worth it for not molding and sprouting. The only onion type I ordered for this season!

    Even thou these are long day variety I wanted to try them in So Cal in one of my Greenstalk’s tower. They did great and some got to 4-5 inches diameter! They are delicious and stored great!

  4. D walker (verified owner)

    Very nice ! These exceeded my expectations. I did have to pull a bit early as these seemed to want to bolt to seed but they are beautiful and large! The price in 2022 was a good value for me to take a chance and order .

    Made onions rings from one of these today, OMG delicious! Just as good if not better than the Alisa Craig or Ringmasters!
