They are bulbs with a flattened shape and the tunic is brownish-white in color. It is cultivated in the territory of the municipality of Giarratana (RG), in the Iblei. In the area of ​​Castrofilippo, in the province of Agrigento, a variety of Paglina onions is cultivated and it was already mentioned in the Bourbon Cadastre.
