These are normally "pearl" onions. Just a small (baby) bulbing onion. Usually a smaller bulbing variety, but any bulbing onion can be used. They just have to been harvested at less than one inch in diameter. Barletta, Cystal White Wax, White Mexican, Pacific Pearl,Mini Purplette. The common set onions can also be used Stuttgart, Yellow Ebenezer, White Ebenezer, Red Weathersfield . Actually easier to grow than large onions.
