Cipollini are small onions, about the size of ping pong balls, that grow flat at their tops and bottoms. They are 1 to 2 inches (3 to 5 cm) wide and about 1 inch thick (2.5 cm.) There are yellow and red skinned ones.
They have a very mild, sweet flavour. From seed, they take 2 1/2 to 3 months to grow.
They are like pearl onions in terms of how you use them. They are meant to be used and served whole. They can be braised, pickled or cooked on kebabs or in dishes.
Pearl onions, quartered large onions.
If you have a good storage place for onions, can be stored up to 2 months
Developed in Italy.

- Intermediate-Day OnionsThis is a term used by people who grow onions. Onions use daylight to produce a good deal of top growth before they form bulbs (and the more top growth, the bigger the bulb.) When the day reaches the right number of hours for that variety of onion, the onion will stop forming top growth, and form a bulb instead.

- Red OnionsRed Onions are onions with reddish-purplish skin, and similarly-coloured lines layer the white rings inside the onion. In general, Red Onions can be a bit sweeter than regular white or yellow onions, but you can't count on this: though they are predisposed to be sweeter, how sharp they will be depends to some extent how much sulphur was in the growing soil or in the fertilizer used.
