Candy is a globe shaped, large onion weighing 1 – 2 lbs (0.45 to 1 kg). This Spanish type of onion is sweet and mild in flavour so it’s perfect in salads, sandwiches, burgers and relishes. Touted to be high in antioxidants, this jumbo-sized bulb is a top choice for onion rings. Candy is early maturing and has short, sturdy tops with small, tight necks which allow for fast curing.
