Onions are the staple of many kitchens. Use them raw in salads or cooked in almost every dish.
It can be difficult to choose the right onion for your area. Onions develop their bulb according to how much daylight they receive during the summer. Northern growers have longer days in the summer, so they need to grow long day onions. Southern growers have more uniform days throughout the year, so they need short day onions. If you live in the middle of the country, then intermediate day onions are for you. If you choose the wrong onion, it will form green onions, but won’t form a bulb.
