Thanks to the particular climate regime and the composition of soils (sandy and wet) used for cultivation, the small town of Cannock near Foligno has an ancient tradition in the production of onions. Of the many varieties produced in the area, all tasty and refined, is reminiscent of the Golden Dawn, the Borettana and White Flat, but the greatest fame excels the Red Onion. Unlike other varieties, which are used for making pies or cooked in the oven and grilled red onion gives birth to the tasty soup, dish of local cuisine since 1600. This is a plant bulb round in shape, with clear and pulp, in contrast to other species, covered by a layer of purplish red color. Its flavor is slightly sweet, not at all tasty, and differs from that of the most common types. It is cultivated manually based on traditional techniques and harvest between July and September, after harvest the onions are tied in bunches and braids, and left to dry for about two weeks stretched on the ground. In the month of September at Cannock held a traditional festival of the onion.
