Judy, cipollini onions here are called button onions, they are only about 2" 
diameter, 1/2" tall and flat and incredibly delicious.  I don't know about 
them being wild.  I have purchased them at Whole Foods mkt. for 4.99 lb.  They 
are good grilled, braised, cooked in meat juices, really delicious, no acquired 
taste required for them.  Renee's garden seeds sells the seed for them.  I 
hope to grow some, haven't yet but that's why I bought a few to try first.  I 
understand a local feed store here used to carry sets for them but this year he 
didn't, just plain white, red and yellow sets.
