Borettana onions are the Italian sports car of onions. Sweet, sleek and stylish with a wonderful flavour, they were once a rare treat only to be found at gourmet restaurants, now they are finally more widely available. These onions are ready to eat and have been pickled in balsamic vinegar for a sweet sharp delicious taste. They make a fantastic addition to any cheeseboard.

Originating in Boretto, in the province of Reggio Emilia, Borettana onions have been cultivated since the 1400’s. Prized throughout Italy for their unique flavour.

Borettana is a wonderfully old Italian variety of cipollini onion, literally meaning ‘little onion’ in Italian. Also known as Borettane or Button onions, they are shaped much like a button.
