Onion / Red Grano
This onion brings tears of joy.
Some scientists argue that when you cut an onion, broken cells release enzymes that mix producing propanethiol S-oxide, a volatile sulfur compound that wafts upward toward your eyes. They say this gas reacts with the water in your tears to form sulfuric acid - stimulating your eyes to release more tears to wash the irritant away...
Rubbish! We entirely disagree with this preposterous assertion. When our customers slice into Heirloom Red Grano Onion, they cry tears of joy! Joy from growing this medium sized, mild flavored heirloom onion in their own garden. Joy from slicing into a beautiful, crisp and aromatic wonder. Joy from making an eye catching salad or a prize winning burger. Joy that while all may not be well in the world, their kitchen is still a happy place. Bring some joy to your world. Short-day variety good south of the 36°30′ parallel (south of Kentucky). 300 seeds.
The Mauro Seed Company only sells 100% non-GMO, open pollinated heirloom vegetable seed. When you buy a pack of seed, we give one to someone in need.
