Lilia onions have a beautiful shiny, intense red inner core with dark green leaves. With their pungent flavour they make a colourful and tasty addition to summer salads. This variety has the added benefit of being able to be grown as a main crop (thin to 15cm (6") apart) or leave to mature as small red bulb onions in September. When fully mature it shows off its defined red and white inner rings.
