Red Karmen onion, Allium cepa ‘Red Karmen’, is an attractive and impressive, beautiful red-skinned onion with flattened-globe-shaped roots. This very fine and sweet onion has a crimson color between individual skins.  The Red Karmen are often consumed raw, grilled, or lightly cooked with other foods; tend to lose their redness when cooked. They will surely add color to your favorite tossed salad! This medium sized early onion has a very good storage life. Red Karmen can be planted as early as the soil can be worked into any well-drained garden soil. Plant the Red Karmen 1 inch deep and 2 to 4 inches apart. Cover with soil, but do not compact the soil and if you have additional rows, the rows should be 12 to 18 inches apart.
