Today in Decor and Gardens We want to make a brief review of the different types of onion. If you decide to plant onions either in a small garden, in your garden or on your terrace or patio … here are some types to distinguish them.

The main onion varieties They are classified according to the shape and color of the bulb, the way in which they multiply, for example the season in which they eat … and others. We also take into account that each year we can obtain new varieties, so here we will only describe some, the most sown in Spain for example.

The slug onion, begins harvesting in May and ends in mid-June … its bulb has an inverted cone shape, crushed at the top. The color is more greenish and has a sweeter taste.

The Liria onion is collected halfway through June and at the end of July … they tend to be spherical … slightly oval and have a beautiful golden yellow color. The taste is sweet and at the same time a little spicy.

While in the autumn-winter the onions we will see are the yellow sulfur, whose bulb is crushed. The layers are quite tight and thick .. adhere easily. Its color is very vivid and contains some green.
