Candy OnionCandy Onions are jumbo to colossal in size and have a sweet, mild flavor. Onions should be planted in late February and early March. Onions do best when temperatures are cool. They will mature in approximately 100 days. Harvest when two-thirds of tops have fallen over. Careful handling to avoid bruising helps control storage rots. Cure onions after harvest in a well-ventilated attic or porch away from direct sun light for one to two weeks. Tops may be left on or cut off, but leave at least one inch of the top when storing. Thorough curing increases storage life.
