Product features and varieties
Common onions are divided in three colour varieties: yellow, red and white, which also differ in organoleptic characteristics and so in cooking uses. Yellow onions have a strong taste, whereas red onions are sweeter and perfect also for raw consumption.
We also commercialize the shallot.
Production area and harvesting
We commercialize onion both from Spain and Italy. Our best varieties of Spanish onions are the yellow Recas, and the red Potes and, between the Italian ones, the famous Borettana onion.
Those two varieties of yellow and red onions are produced on a farm in the west of the Spanish region Andalucía in the highlands of about 1000 m elevation. Protected from extreme heat waves and droughts, our red onions can thrive until the harvest in the beginning of August until beginning of November. The yellow onions, on the other side, are available from September until February.
Italian onions, including Borettana, and shallot are available from August till the end of February or the beginning of March. The areas of production in Italy are in Abruzzo and Sicily.
Onions can be delivered loose in cardboard boxes from Spain. For the Italian products the boxes available are in cardboard box wooden and RPC.
