Bunching onions are used when young and green, plants can be harvested in two ways: you can pull entire plants and eat them like green onions, or you can snip off leaves as needed throughout the growing season, more like chives. Leaves will grow back quickly and can be cut down several times throughout the season. To harvest storage onions: when onion tops begin to fall over, turn brown and wither, it is time to harvest.
Bunching onions can be stored for up to 10 days in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be frozen easily.
For storage onions,tipping bulbs over to break some of the roots will speed drying. Pull and place onions in dry, warm airy location out of direct sun for up to 3 weeks to cure. After curing process is complete, store in cool, dry location. The drier the onions, the better they store.
