L’Oignon Rosé de Roscoff

For ages I’ve wanted to try growing the marvellous pink French onion ‘rosé de Roscoff’, aka Keravel; the sort Onion Johnnies used to bring to the UK on bikes and old Citroëns. I managed to find seed on a French website a couple of years ago but they didn’t do well. So this year I became obsessive and finally triumphed in finding onion sets by googling en français and a neat little packet duly arrived from La Bonne Graine in Anjou. They’re now planted in a sunny bed and I do hope they like it there.

    One of the greatest things about growing your own food from seed, is the ability to find lots of interesting varieties. Good luck with those onions! 🙂
