Did You Know?

The onion belongs to the Lily family, which also includes numerous beautiful flowering plants (edible and not). Freshly harvested onions have higher moisture content than storage onions and are lighter in color. From the middle to the end of the storage season (Nov-Mar), onions become drier and more yellow in color.
