Storage and Handling Tips
The water content in Vidalia onions is much higher than in regular storage onions. This characteristic contributes to Vidalia’s sweet taste, but it also shortens their life and makes them more susceptible to bruising.
To keep them at their best, Vidalias must be handled and stored with care by the grower, the retailer and you, the customer.
The key to preserving Vidalias is to keep them cool and dry.
How to store fresh sweet onions- one of our favorite places to store Vidalias is the veggie bin in the refrigerator. Wrap each bulb individually in paper towels, which will help absorb moisture, and place them in the crisper with the vents closed. A few will naturally go bad, but many will keep for months. Buy a big bad at the end of the season and you should have Vidalias through the holidays!
In the legs of clean, sheer pantyhose- believe it or not tis is a great way to store sweet onions. Tie a knot in between each Vidalia and simply cut above the knot when you want to use one! Be sure to hang in a cool, dry, well- ventilated area.
On elevated racks or screens, not touching, and in a cool, dry place.
Don’t store with potatoes, which makes the onions go bad quicker
