Onion Sets - Rumba (Heat Prepared)
- Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society
- Sweet and well-flavoured for salads or sauces
- Excellent variety to store for preparing over winter
Get Onion Rumba on your vegetable patch; simply plant the 'sets' as early as March in the ground and they'll be ready to harvest and enjoy from August.
Because they store well in a cool and dry place you can enjoy them over autumn and winter too.
We heat-prepare the sets before they arrive to you which means the plants are less likely to produce seeds and put all their energy into making the edible bulb bigger and better-flavoured.
Rumba is a top-performing main-crop variety that’s ideally suited to growing in the UK. We recommend you grow them in raised bed or a VegTrug where the soil heats up quicker for bigger bulbs, quicker.
It produces high yields of large, uniform, round onions with a sweet flavour, making it ideal for eating raw in salads as well as cooking. Good thick skin and quality flesh makes this a good variety for long-term storing.See Full Description +
