This intermediate/long day onion is often referred to as a summer mini onion. These pretty little Italian onions from Boretto, Italy have a flattened spherical shape and look just like rosy-bronze glossy buttons, each about 1-3" diameter and 1" thick. When cooked, they really sweeten up and caramelize to a beautiful color. A unique offering for farmers' markets. Ideal for braiding.

Free Shipping! *Alaska and Hawaii customers will be charged $2.00 per bunch over 10 bunches for shipping/handling once the order has been processed.

After 30 bunches, the pricing starts over. In addition to their standard shipping charges both UPS and Fedex charge a 5.2% fuel surcharge, $3.50 residential delivery surcharge, a dimensional weight surcharge, and $3.80 delivery area surcharge on each package, so we must charge each order over 30 as a separate shipment. For example, a 45 bunch order will be priced as a 30 bunch order and a 15 bunch order.

Case lot pricing is for single variety cases. $85.05 for 1 case (save 10%), $80.33 for 2-9 cases (save 15% per case), $75.60 for 10-19 cases (save 20% per case), and $70.88 for 20 or more (save 25% per case). When we import your order, the price of the case lots will be adjusted to reflect the discounted price for single variety cases.

Roasted Candy!
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Apr 27, 2018
Mamma Mia! We've been growing this variety for five years now. They are wonderful! Clean, mix with a little salt, pepper, chopped rosemary and thyme and olive oil. Then, line up in a roasting dish (works well because of their shape). Then, into the oven and what comes out are the sweetest roast onions you'll ever have. Like candy. This is a favorite Easter treat for us each year, too. The onions will hold over in a nice dry fridge protected from light. Love them!! Fairfield, Ct

I've been growing these Dixondale onions for several years. They are delicious and store well. My two favorite ways to cook them are with balsamic vinegar in the oven or directly on a charcoal grill. Yummy! Fort Collins, Colorado

Great open pollinated onion
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Mar 20, 2017
My garden focuses on native and open-pollinated/heirloom vegetables and fruits, so last year I gave Borettana Cipollini a try. Excellent onion all around. Great flavor and excellent keeper--8 months for me. Very tight skin, which is hard to get off when cooking, but is exactly what gives it long shelf life. Glad to have this one in my garden. Fargo, ND

I shared a bunch with my friend since we hadn't tried this variety before. My largest reached 3.5 inches and most were 3 inches or a little better - much larger than expected. A very mild, crisp onion that has many uses.

Glazed onions

In a cooking class in Italy some years ago, I learned to make a great glazed onion using Cippolini onions. and I have been making it ever since thanks to Dixondale Farms. BTW, if you keep the onions refrigerated, they last much longer than six months.Palmyra, VA

Crazy about the Cippolinis
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Nov 13, 2011
We live in the Shenandoah Valley, zone 6b. I had a pleasing variety size of onions at harvest in Mid July. I canned 5 pints of beautiful little balsamic marinated cippolinis and had about another 6-7 pounds of the larger ones to enjoy. The size ranged from flat golf ball to flat tennis ball. Currently at 4 months after harvest, I still have a few in my cool basement that are keeping very nicely. Harrisonburg, Va

The Cippolinies were fantastic this year. We never eat these raw in salads, etc. They turn into a magical food when cooked with butter or olive oil. We use them when we roast meats or caramelize them with butter and put on a veggie pizza--just fantastic. Something wonderful happens to these darling little onions when they are cooked--they taste like sugar has been added to the pan. Chalsell, MI

Giant Cippolinis

I live in Eastern MA and my cippolinis grew very large, they looked like alien onions they were so big--and, they grew big early. I was going to pickle some but they were too big. All my onions from you folks grew large and bountifully, we got bushels for the food bank.
