Botanical name: Allum Cepa Var
Onion seed is small, flat, black and irregular shaped. We use brown onion seed which is the highest quality. Allium sprouts are unlike other seeds as they produce the root first.
Nutritional Value: Onion is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fibre, Vitamin B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin C. It has a high sugar content.
Germination: 10 to 15 days to sprout makes this one of the slowest sprouting seeds, but the flavour that it delivers is definitely worth the extra sprouting time.
