An Improved yellow sweet spanish. All purpose onions. HARVEST AND STORAGE: Harvest your onions when the tops fall over. Pull and let dry on the ground for a few days. Do not allow them to get wet or rained upon. When tops have dried out, clip off an inch from the bulb and store in a ventilated area. The preferred way to store onions is using a pair of pantyhose. Place an onion in one leg and tie a knot, drop another in and tie a knot. Continue until the hose is full and loop over a rafter or overhang. Another method is to loosely wrap each onion in newspaper and keep in a cool ventilated area. Regardless of what method you like to use, try to keep the onions from touching each other. Sweeter onions (due to their high water content) will not keep as long as stronger tasting more pungent onion varieties.
