The Selva red onion is a variety of red onion. Very similar to that of Certaldo. Its cultivation has intensively resumed in recent years, by the will of the Onion of the Selva Association. The project started with the use of the gardens adjacent to the SS. Trinità convent which was owned first by the Sforza and then by the Aldobrandeschi families. Thanks to the success of the initiative, the cultivation soon spread to the surrounding land.
The Selva red onionis a fairly large, flattened, rounded onion. The taste is sweet and delicate, it can also be eaten raw, in salads or in the traditional Tuscan panzanella.
