Photo du Jour - Onion Rouge


Sweet red onions from Toulouges, a Catalan town near the Spanish border, close to Perpignan.

Amazing. Five and a half years here and I've never seen these before!

(and no, they don't look red to me either) Pin It

Interesting. They look more pink than red -- very pretty. I've never heard of them either.

Oh I think these are those that I have heard of, so sweet that you can eat them like an apple (sort of)! but to call them red hmmm...French! Says she who lives in Italy where precision is a dream only!

I know! On the Toulouges town website there is a photo of their red onions and they are red, not pale pink like these.
Hmm....

I'll take a bite and let you know. I hope you're right!
Color is subjective, isn't it! :)
