This may sound crazy, but onions can talk. It sounds silly, but it’s true. Oh, alright . . . so they don’t actually speak with a voice, but in their own special way, they do have a form of communicating that I find really interesting and I think you will also.
Here’s the deal. Depending on the variety, onions take 4 to 5 months to develop. When it has nearly reached full size, the green top of the onion plant will fall over. This is the plants way of saying, “I am ready to be harvested. I am done growing and now is the time to take me out of the field and make me into something tasty!”
Here are a few photos to demonstrate the process.
Onions may be known as the humble vegetable, but they are so fascinating, don’t you agree?!
