The only red onion I've had last so long.
These are good onions, not too strong. And they kept pretty well in my basement over the winter. Some started sprouting in January, but I was able to keep using some through March.

Quick delivery
Onions arrived prompt and in great condition. The only negative is there are not 60 included in the set as stated. Other than that everything else is great.
