A pleasant flavour
Many people cannot distinguish between the white onion and the yellow onion. The white onion is slightly sweeter with a clearer flavour. However, it does not last as long as the yellow onion.
The appearance and size are the same as the yellow onion, but the flesh is white and shiny; the skin is also white.
The flavour is sweeter than the yellow onion, which is why it is delicious when served raw.
Buying and storing tips
The white onion is available year-round. The flavour is the same regardless of the season. White onions should be kept in cool, dry and dark conditions.
Given its mild flavour and crunchy texture, it is ideal for salads, finely sliced and added to sandwiches or served on a delicious pizza. This type of onion is very popular in Latin American cuisine, where it is added to huevos rancheros, frijoles refritos or picadillo Cubano.
