Red calcot onions are available mid-fall through the winter months.
The Red calcot onion is a type of green onion from Lleida, Catalonia, Spain. As with many agricultural products, the calcot onion from Tarragona, Catalonia is a registered EU Protected Geographical Indication. This certification designates that a product possesses certain qualities and is made according to traditional methods due to its geographical origin.
The Red calcot onion is not a specific variety, rather it is produced by a traditional Spanish process. This process begins with a Vidalia variety, which is saved from the previous season and replanted in the late summer. The dirt is mounded around the bulb and the plant in turn produces long green onion stems, known as the calcot onion. The Red calcot onion is longer than other green onion varieties and delivers a distinguishable juicy consistency with a sweet flavor.
