HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Since onions take a few months to mature from seed, gardeners with a short growing season may want to start their seed indoors. Plant organic yellow Cipollini onion seeds 1/2" deep in a flat 2-3 months before the last frost date; keep the soil moist and at room temperature. When the tops begin to flop over, cut them off to 3" to focus the growing on the roots. Four weeks before the last frost or when the soil reaches at least 50 degrees F, transplant the seedlings in rows 12" apart. For direct sowing, sow three organic yellow Cipollini onion seeds per inch 1/2" deep in light, rich soil and full sun. Thin the seedlings 2-6" apart, depending on the desired size. Thinned onions can be transplanted or used for fresh eating. For companion planting benefits, plant onions with members of the cabbage family, lettuce, or tomatoes; avoid planting onions with peas or beans. In areas with warmer winters, onions may be grown as a fall or winter crop.

Growing: Onions need moisture especially in their first several weeks of growth, and they cannot fight against weeds; mulching onions can help with both moisture and weed control.

Harvesting: When the tops of the onions turn yellow or flop over, they have matured and are ready to be harvested. Pull them from the earth, brush off the dirt, and leave them to cure in the sun for a week. If the weather turns rainy, bring them inside to cure in a dry, well ventilated place. When the skin dries, cut the tops down to 1" and trim the roots. Store in a cool, dry place. Cipollini onions store well for the winter.

Seed Saving: Onions need to overwinter before producing seed. In warmer locations, simply apply a thick layer of mulch and remove it in the early spring. In areas with very cold winters, pull up the onions and cut off half the stem; store them at 32-40 degrees F in a dry place until spring, when they can be replanted. Before planting, cut an X in the top of the onion to allow the stalk to emerge. The plants will flower and go to seed. Remove the seed heads when the seeds become visible, taking care not to shatter the heads and lose the seed. Spread the heads out in a dry place with good ventilation, and let them dry for several weeks. Thresh out organic yellow Cipollini onion seeds and store them in a cool, dry place for up to 2 years.

Yellow Cipollini onions, named with the Italian word meaning "little onion," have also been called the poor man's onion. It has good sweetness, yet is still pungent. It is larger and flatter than most pearl onions and is an excellent choice for braising or cooking.
Yellow Cipollini onions, named for the Italian word meaning "little onion," have also been called the poor man's onion. In times when poverty made eating meat or bread impossible, people of Italy grew this tiny onion and made it a staple of their diet. Now a tradition and often found in their national cuisine, Italians usually serve this onion grilled or roasted to bring out the natural sweetness.
