Onion harvesting in central Texas

Zone 78753 | ErinWendel added on May 13, 2018 | Answered

We pulled all our onions today after the tops had fallen over for a few days to a week. After we pulled them we cut all the greens off only to realize afterwards when reading more about it that we should have left them on until dry. What would you suggest to do for curing and storing them since the greens have already been cut? We have more than w can use up right away and don’t want them to rot. Our garage seems humid and gets some light from windows. Would they rot in the shade on the porch since the greens have been cut?

Though it is best to leave the tops on, you can cure the onions without the tops.
