Supplies are limited so make sure you don't miss out next time by having us automatically notify you when it becomes available again.



Nearly impossible to find in grocery stores. The wine-colored, flattened globes are 1" tall by 2"–3" across. Their sweet-yet-robust flavor shines in fresh or cooked dishes — perfect for roasting, grilled kebabs, pickling or thinly sliced on a good sandwich. Harvest when tops fall over. Dry in the sun for 2 days, then cure out of the sun in a dry area for 5 days. Once dry, cut the roots to 1/4", and the greens to 1" to create a seal, preventing decay. Store in mesh bags in a cool, dry place for best storage results. Intermediate day.
