The cipolline Borettane is an Italian pearl onion known for its flat, saucer-like shape. Previously produced only in Italy, these unusual and elegant onions are now grown on our farms. Our cipolline range from 1" to 3" in diameter and are available year-round in most supermarkets. The taste of cooked cipolline is uniquely mild and sweet.
