Onions

ZZ2 Onions are produced in Mooketsi, Polokwane, Unilim and Ceres. In the winter months onions are produced in the north (Limpopo) and in the summer months in the south (Western Cape). This offers a combined annual yield of 30 000 tonnes of onions. Although most of our onions are sold on national fresh produce markets, supermarket orders are growing by the year.

Varieties: The onions from Limpopo are lighter in colour, whereas the Cape onions are darker brown. Both varieties are excellent for cooking or raw in salads. ZZ2 also recently added other Allium (onion) types, including:

  • Sweet onions,
  • Red onions and
  • Shallots.
