You’re used to spring summer onions, but as we head into fall and winter, you’ll likely be noshing on the fall/winter onions.
These onions are available from August through May, in yellow, red and white. You’ll be eating storage onions, most likely, but these ninjas can lie in wait a long time before they even begin to lose steam.

- Easy to recognize by their multiple layers of thick, darker colored skin.
- Commonly lower in water content, they have a longer shelf-life.
- Range in flavor from mild to pungent.
- Best uses: Caramelized, roasted, fried or any dish with a longer cook time.
