Sweet Red Onions
Our truly sweet red onion which can be eaten like an apple, was developed by one of our growers Alastair Findlay.
Following a visit to the USA 25 years ago Alastair set about breeding a red onion that was consistently sweet.
Onion strength is measured according to its pyruvate levels. This onion has a consistently low pyruvate level allowing you to be confident to eat it raw.
In 2014 we brought this sweet red onion to market, launching in a leading UK retailer. As the first ever Sweet Red onion it has featured on Fox News, Food Unwrapped and through an agreement with a US grower and producer is now available in the USA under the “Wicked Sweet Brand”.
The onion is available in the UK from October through to April. As it is more akin to salads it is best kept refrigerated.
