Peris is undoubtedly one of the country’s leading specialists in Fresh or Tender Onions. It is a very demanding crop, which requires very well drained soils for the plants to grow healthy and strong. Exclusive hand picking keeps the leaves whole, as well as peeling and careful presentation or bunches and trays. These onions are very appreciated because they are sweet and have an exquisite flavor to combine in salads, dips or even cooking.
