Wethersfield Onion

The Wethersfield Onion is a red onion believed to have originated in Connecticut. Drawings of it on the Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s abode) website date from 1885, and the description states that it grows to a large, flattened bulb, approximately 5-inches in diameter. It is one of the Renewing America’s Food Traditions (RAFT) Grow-out varieties, and if you’d like to grow it in your own garden, seeds are available from Monticello.
