I'm sharing tips on how to store garden onions through the winter. A lot of it has to do with how you store them, but also a key component, is which variety of onions you grow, look for storage onion varieties!
I begin planting onion seeds indoors in January because they have a long growing time. There are many benefits to starting onion from seed instead of sets. The main benefit is trying many new varieties of onions that are not available in sets.
Choosing a storage onion variety, is the most important piece of the puzzle, if you want to keep your family in home grown onions through the winter. Sweet onions are best eaten fresh, the high sugar content does not allow them to be stored for long.
