Botanical Interest - Yellow of Parma Bulb Onion Heirloom Organic Seeds
*VAT EXCLUSIVE PRICING*
Onion growers in Parma, Italy were elated with the 1896 introduction of 'Dorata di Parma' or "Golden of Parma" as it translates. This heirloom is not only sweet and mild, but has more complex onion flavor. It stores an incredibly long time, lasting until the following harvest in some cases. Over time in storage, the flavor becomes more pungent. Long day onions, like 'Yellow of Parma', grow largest in the north, above the 37th parallel, where summer days are longest.
