The Roscoff Pink onion was first brought from Brittany, to the UK by an enterprising french grower in 1828.  This continued for many years as more and more sellers, affectionately known as "Johnnies" brought their wares to our shores.  Their arrival was eagerly anticipated as the soft pink blushed onions were well known to be crunchy, sweet and juicy raw and soft and fruity once lightly cooked.  It is said to be more easily digested than other varieties.
