Dating back to the 1700s, Wethersfield red onions are among the best-known of America’s heirloom onions, with a rich history inextricably tied to the nation’s earliest years. The 1856 Comstock-Ferre catalog states, “It is the kind mostly grown at Wethersfield. It grows to large size, deep red, thick, approaching to round shape, fine-grained, pleasant flavored, and very productive. It ripens in September and keeps well.” It is a slightly flattened, deep blood-red onion of renowned quality. A true piece of horticultural Americana!
