Specialty onions

jeffnfranSeptember 27, 2007

Anyone in the Northeast growing/selling, red torpedo, Cipollini or White Pearl onions?

Just wondering what a fair price would be and how you are selling them, ie: bunched or loose??

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

In the Northwest here but here's what we did with specialty onions from '96 to '02. We sold the puple pearl type onions at $1 a bunch for 10. The most surprising onion that was in demand was the Egyptian Walking Onion. We marketed them as an onion to eat with sets to plant. Got $1 each and they were always good for a few hundred dollars of sales/season. Tom
