Ailsa Craig Onion
Allium cepa cepa 'Ailsa Craig'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Named after a craggy island off the Scottish coast with a domed top that some say resembles a giant onion partially submerged in the sea. The island is visible from Culzean Castle on the mainland where in the late 1800s the head gardener for the Marquis of Ailsa created this exceptional variety by crossing two varieties widely grown in British gardens at the time. The onions are huge, up to two pounds each, with honey brown skin and mild-flavoured sweet flesh. Excellent for cooking and in salads and burgers. Like other mild onions, it does not store for long. 95-100 days.
