Italian Cipollini onions are available year round.
Cipollini onions, AKA Cipolline Borettane or just Cipolline, literally translates as little onion in Italian. They are bulbing onions that are harvested about 100 days after planting. Common Cipollini onion varieties are Gold Princess, Flat of Italy, Bianca di Maggio and Noordhollandse Bloedrode. They can be distinguished by three colors: white, yellow and red.
Cipollini onions have petite, saucer shaped bulbs that vary from 1-3 inches in diameter. They have pale yellow and gold-colored thin papery skin with translucent white flesh. In their raw state, Cipollinis are firm and semi-sweet with a pungent flavor. Once cooked, they sweeten and soften dramatically.
Caramelizing and slow roasting Cipollini onions brings out their best qualities. They have a depth of flavor that can hold up to herbs and assertive cheeses.
Cipollini onions were originally cultivated in Italy. They have been domesticated in other regions, however, they prefer a close replication of their original growing climate of the warmer Mediterranean.
