What's in a name? that which we call an onion? a shallot? an onion?

What would you call a allium that is botanically an onion (allium cepa) - single bulb, no internal divides, but has the sugar breakdown of a shallot (allium escalonicum) - high in sucrose, low in fructose and glucose? Nope, not an Shonion or an Onllot. Try BGS-270.

Bred by Bejo Seeds and cultivated by Adam and Cory Jacobson in Fulton, NY, BGS-270 stores as good as a potato, caramelizes like a shallot, and is as easy to peel as an onion.

BGS-270 plays a starring role in tonight's farmer's feast.
