Onion, Violet de Galmi

The Galmi onion comes from the village of Galmi, a small community in Southeast Niger. It is here where this flavorful onion was developed and is believed to have been grown, selected and passed down for over 100 years. It is now a popular onion in several other African countries as well. Flat, thick bulbs are of good quality and are a beautiful pinkish-purple color; it also keeps well, making it a perfect choice as a short day onion. Matures 105-110 days after transplant.
