A fantastic red storage onion. An Italian heirloom with a top-heavy, top-like shape, 'Rossa di Milano' performs very well when grown from seed. Our growers even noticed a strong resistance to the dreaded purple blotch disease (caused by the Alternaria fungus) compared to other heirlooms and hybrids. GROWING TIPS: Plant in trays in March shooting to drop seeds 1/4 inch apart, topdress with compost bi-weekly or as needed, transplanting out in early May. Plants should be 3-6 inches apart, in rows 12-24 inches apart. Onions can also be planted in bunches, with 2-3 seedlings next to each other every foot or so. Allow onions to dry in field until tops flop over for best storage.
