  • Dont buy onions which are already sprouting or have signs of decay, wilting or discolored tops.
  • Store onions room temperature but well ventilated area away from bright light so as to prevent roots from growing.
  • DO NOT put onions together with potatoes as they will absorb the moisture and ethylene gas from potatoes and rot faster.

  • Store Cut onions in an air-tight condition to prevent oxidization. Use within one or two days.
