Simple to use, the sliced onion can be used dehydrated in a little water or added sparingly to your dishes.

    The onion harvest

    The onion is an easy plant to grow. It adapts to both temperate and tropical climates. However, a better yield is noted in countries where the seasons are marked.

    Onions can be planted in the fall or spring. Onions germinate during cool periods and grow larger during hot periods. On average, 2 kilos of onions are harvested per m² of cultivated land.

    Onions are ready to be harvested when their foliage is dry. It is important to dry them quickly to prevent them from rotting.
