Damseeds, offers this description: "Long, red, torpedo onion prized in Mediterranean cultures, for which we have had requests from professional chefs. This strain produces a redder version of the Tropeana type. Specialty variety from Italy that is adapted to growing in the summer above the 35th parallel. Not for storage."
