ONION – Ailsa Craig

(100 seeds)

$4.20

(1 customer review)

Absolutely enormous yet super-tasty onions

Growing giant veg can become a hobby in itself. Amaze your family and friends with the hugest onion variety of them all. Ailsa Craig onions are so enormous that you may be accused of a little cheating - maybe some genetic meddling - but it's an old-fashioned heirloom that's as natural as the earth you plant it in. There's nothing wrong with the flavour either - but it doesn't store very well, so it is best eaten fresh. Plant and be astounded.
