Get our onions from our online market store for only 10.00 MUR.
These garden-grown vegetables are full of flavor and texture! They are popular and long-lasting root vegetables that can be grown in many climates.
- We grow them in loose, sandy soil during the cooler periods of the growing season—winter because they can tolerate frost.
- Depending on the variety and local growing conditions, onions may take anywhere from 4 to 6 months to mature.
- Twist or cut off all but ½ inch of the tops, scrub off any dirt under cold running water, and air-dry, in order to store these freshly-harvested vegetables.
- Seal in airtight plastic bags, and refrigerate.
- Store it in your refrigerator.
- Store in tubs of moist sand or dry sawdust in a cool, dry area.
- Leave mature onions in the soil for temporary storage if the ground will not freeze and pests aren’t a problem.
- Do not simply put fresh onion in the refrigerator.
- Yes, you can plant a sprouted onion, though you won’t get more onions from it. You will get lots of tasty green sprouts, however! Here’s how to do it:
- Fill a pot with potting soil and make a hole in the middle that is about the depth and width of the onion.
- Place the onion in the hole and cover it with soil.
- Water and put the pot in a sunny spot.
- Harvest the green sprouts as needed for cooking.
