What's in Season Now - Torpedo Onions

pic


The torpedo onions are an early season alium - larger than spring onions, but they can be eaten raw or cooked and as the season progresses, they lose their tail, take on the brown outer skin, but don't really last beyond the end of summer.

 

They are a delight to have at this time of year - dont miss out on them!
