Harvesting Onions (page 2 of 2)

by National Gardening Association Editors

Curing Basics

Here are the basics of curing:

  • Sun dry for just a short time.
  • Cure just the onions you'll store; separate the soft, young and thick-necked bulbs and use them first.
  • Cure thoroughly in a warm, well-ventilated area away from direct sun.
  • Don't crowd onions during curing; give them room to breathe.
  • Onions are ready to store when the skins rattle and the roots are dry and wiry.
