For extended storage, hold dry onions at 32-26 degrees F/0-2 degrees C. Maintain good air ventilation during storage; keep onions out of direct sunlight. Store dry onions away from foods that absorb odors.
Handle onions with care to prevent bruising or decay. Spring/summer onions are especially susceptible to bruising due to high water and sugar content.
