First up are Variety Onions. In this category are Pearls, Boilers and Cipollini onions. Cipollini onions are the only sweet onions of the season.
Robert concludes with a discussion of Variety Potatoes. The show-stopper here is DYPs (dutch yellow potatoes) from Iowa. A year-round standard at Melissa’s. Already roasted and packaged DYPs are a popular new item from Melissa’s. Ruby Golds are a cousin of DYPs. Also Mixed Fingerlings.
